  • "I've found this book to be a practical, hands-on manual that explains how OpenVMS system managers can integrate their systems with Linux, allowing the two platforms to work cooperatively and extend the processing capability of a computing environment. John clearly describes the features and benefits of both operating systems, so that you can evaluate which one is best for any given task. The hints, tips, and techniques you'll find here will help you create a heterogeneous OpenVMS and Linux computing environment to meet your needs today and tomorrow."—Martin R.
