"The explosive growth of the Linux operating system, Apache Web server and indeed the Internet itself are testimony to the power of a style of networked collaboration called "Open Source," based on the free sharing of source code so that others can improve on it. This free-flowing style of technology sharing has created unprecedented shifts in the power structures of the computer industry."
"The growth, development trajectories, cultural underpinnings, intellectual foundations, business potential and challenges facing the Open Source movement are superbly articulated in Eric Raymond's landmark manifesto, "The Cathedral and the Bazaar."
"This book is about much more than computer science; it is a must read for anyone interested in the future of not just the software industry but of intellectual property, work culture, human motivation, Internet-driven global peering, and new business models in the Information Age."
