"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."
