"Eric Raymond's Open Source Manifesto--Revised and Updated for the New Millennium."

"It's been called "the most important book of the software frontier of the 1990s"--"the definitive work on the open source evolution"--"a landmark piece of information technology"--"a must read for anyone that wants to understand what open source software is all about." The Computer Press Association bestowed it with its Best Nonfiction Computer Book Award of 2000; "ForeWord Magazine" voted it Business Book of the Year, and "The Designer's Bookshelf" gave it its Editor's Choice Award."

"The accolades for "The Cathedral & the Bazaar," the book of seminal essays, (originally published online) by hacker philosopher Eric S. Raymond, acknowledge the impact of open source software on the technology world. Raymond's evangelism helped persuade Netscape to release their browser as open source, put Linus Torvalds on the cover of "Forbes Magazine" and Microsoft on the defensive, and helped Linux rock the world of commercial software. As spiritual father of the open source revolution, he has created an unparalleled philosophical analysis of the hacker world with his writings, and has shown how profoundly the open source movement affects the world at large."
