Our look is the result of reader comments, our own experimentation, and feedback from distribution channels. Distinctive covers complement our distinctive approach to technical topics, breathing personality and life into potentially dry subjects. The animal featured on the cover of SCO UNIX in a Nutshell is a grizzly bear. The grizzly inhabits the colder regions of the Northern Hemisphere. In North America it is found in Canada and northwestern US. Though not as big as some of the brown bears, a full grown grizzly can weigh up to 700 pounds and is the most aggressive of the bear family. Although they are omnivores, grizzlies will eat meat whenever possible. Also, though heavy, thickset animals with a lumbering gait, grizzlies are capable of moving at 25 mph over short distances.Grizzlies are solitary except during mating or when females are rearing cubs. However, they seem to "communicate" using "bear-trees." There are certain trees which bears will tear a piece of bark off of whenever they pass. It is not known what this signifies, but the bear tree does serve as some kind of signal. ...Edie Freedman designed this cover from illustrations drawn by Arthur Saarinen.The fonts used in the book are Garamond and Garamond book.
