Review by folini
This book is an interesting window on the Open Source world, a strange planet with strange people. Some crazy idealist like R. Stallman (I like the guy very much), some smart and intelligent person like L. Torvald (he did a fantastic job with Linux). In between someone that was just in the right place at the right time and doesn't deserve so much space and celebrity. I am talking about a person that seems confused as the language he invented: Larry Wall. His contribution does not require further comments.
