Arch Linux Handbook 3.0

After some unexpected delays, I am proud to present the latest version of the Arch Linux Handbook: https://www.createspace.com/3904652. This Handbook is based off the Arch Linux Beginners’ Guide as it was on June 10, 2012. Due to complaints with previous editions, I put extra effort into the interior of this version, removing the styling on things that look like links to other wiki pages, and ensuring that such links at least give a hint as to what you should search for on the Arch Wiki for further information.

Even so, the handbook is little more than a printout of the Beginners’ Guide. It does not contain any new information aside from a short forward I authored. However, if you are looking for a paper copy of the Beginners’ Guide in a convenient handbook size, this book is exactly what you are looking for.

As with version 2.0 of the handbook, the cover design for version 3.0 was done by Branko Vukelic, a gifted artist, designer, and web developer.

    Perhaps this should have been delayed just a little bit longer so it could include information regarding the new media.

    hi, thanks for this job :D I think to buy it, I like the book format(ahh the paper), not only the web-format, so.. I have a question, is “based” as it was on June 10 2012, before a lot of changes the last weeks about mainly systemd, rc.conf, install scripts, etc, but, even with that, all about systemd is there?? thanks..

  4. This looks like a great thing to have. Is there a epub/kindle version available? I don’t want to kill trees for Linux:-)
