"As an officer in the U.S. Air Force, a subsidiary of US.gov, Maj. Justin Seiferth knows that pushing any policy through the molasses-thick military bureaucracy is always an exercise in frustration. Nevertheless, when it came time to pick a research project during a year-long training stint at the Air Command and Staff College at Maxwell AFB in Alabama, Seiferth, a 37-year-old programmer and part-time Apache hacker, decided to let his opinions about open source software be known."

Leavening Linux with a few martial references to Clausewitz and Sun Tzu, Seiferth makes sure to advise his readers on the significance of open source culture in the eyes of the U.S. military."
