        Comments about oreilly Getting Started with ownCloud:

        Nearly all the information from this book is available in the ownCloud Admin Documentation. The online documentation has more detail than this book. Especially when it comes to installation.
        This book is really more like a bad joke. I know this book is short but I expected it to have content that is not in the online documentation. I am very disappointed that I spend money for this book.
