Free e-books for “Dummies” a comprehensive list for newbies.

This list has been the work of many of my colleagues and I wanted to share this list with people to start a growing list of free e-books that vendors have contributed to the IT eco-system. Thanks to all these talented engineers and vendors for sharing their internal wisdom.. I hope you guys benefit and let me know what you think.

Please be aware that views maybe slanted towards the vendor’s solution. So, have one eye toward skepticism and another on curiosity.

I’m sure there are more out in the wild and if you would like to contribute to this list please feel free to add a thread . I would prefer they point to the vendors or whomever the contributor is vs. a shared folder because we should give credit where credit is due.
