San Francisco, CA, April 9, 2013—OpenBSD is an elegant, highly secure Unix-like operating system. Because OpenBSD is completely free and open source, it relies on user support and The OpenBSD Foundation for its existence and upkeep. As a show of support for this important non-profit and the OpenBSD community, No Starch Press and author Michael W. Lucas are auctioning the first printed copy of Lucas's second edition of Absolute OpenBSD (No Starch Press, April 2013, 536 pp., $59.95, ISBN 9781593274764).
The auction runs through Sunday, April 14. The highest bidder will receive the first printed copy of Absolute OpenBSD, 2nd Edition, signed by Michael W. Lucas. All proceeds from the auction will benefit The OpenBSD Foundation. For more details, see here.
"The first book off the press is something I'd like to own, especially after spending four years writing it," says author Michael W. Lucas. "But OpenBSD and the community around it has had my back for years, and this way I can return the favor."
