Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"At Andamooka.org, you'll find a small collection of open content books with titles like "Newtonian Physics," "Maximum RPM," and "Linux From Scratch." These aren't cheesy online brochures or poorly written attempts at vainglory. No, they're full-fledged e-books that the authors have graciously placed at the Andamooka.org site in order to share the contents with the world."

"Readers at Andamooka.org are encouraged to provide annotations for each book they read - page by page. It's a unique way to disseminate the written word. Seems like a good way for authors to receive immediate feedback on their work, if they're brave enough to endure thousands of people picking it apart and offering improvements."

"On Andamooka.org, there's even a section for fiction. Granted, there's only one book in that section, but it's more than you'd think to look for at a site dedicated to openness that seems to attract books about open source-y stuff like Debian and Gnome and Red Hat."
