O'Reilly's UNIX Sales Surge
SEBASTOPOL, CA--Tim O'Reilly, president of O'Reilly & Associates, reported today sales of its UNIX technical books have surged. Sales of Unix In A Nutshell, the best-selling UNIX book in publishing history, have tripled in the past month, as have those of many of the company's other UNIX titles. "We believe UNIX is finding a whole new audience," said O'Reilly. "It's hard to ignore an operating system that is capable of supporting the enterprise and has been pounded on by the world's largest companies and institutions for over 25 years. We're bullish on UNIX."

O'Reilly & Associates continues to publish new books for UNIX. This fall it will release The UNIX CD Bookshelf (ISBN: 1-56592-406-1, $69.95 US), a book/digital book package containing the full text of six O'Reilly titles ( Unix In A Nutshell, Unix Power Tools, Learning the Unix Operating System, Learning the vi Editor, sed & awk, and Learning the Korn Shell), plus the software from Unix Power Tools.

O'Reilly's UNIX publishing program consists of a matrix of system administration, user-level, C programming and utility books, as well as books covering such Open Source technologies as Perl, Tcl/Tk, and Apache. O'Reilly's Linux titles, which include Linux In A Nutshell and Running Linux, are among the best-selling guides to this Open Source UNIX variant.
