"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."
"While "Open Source & These United States" might not
threaten to topple "Cathedral and the Bazaar" from the Linux
bestseller list, it does lay out a clear, concise and
refreshingly jargon-free case for open source. 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."
