It's up to you guys, but personally I prefer Alex.

I don't know, but I just asked my O'Reilly editor and perhaps she'll
be able to give me some estimate for that time.

I entirely agree -- searching (AND copy-and-pasting) make Safari very
useful.  If, like in my case, you find yourself traveling a lot, with 
net access just about everywhere but unable to carry all that many 
books around, then that's another plus.  Now that I'm hooked, I wouldn't
give up Safari easily -- it has absolutely not _substituted_ for paper
books in my life, but it's proven vastly useful on its own account.
