Cathedral And The Bazaar: Musings On Linux And Open Source By An Accidental Revolutionary (English) Revised 2nd Edition (paperback) Price: Rs.1068

Open source provides the competitive advantage in the Internet Age. According to the August Forrester Report, 56 percent of IT managers interviewed at Global 2,500 companies are already using some type of open source software in their infrastructure and another 6 percent will install it in the next two years. This revolutionary model for collaborative software development is being embraced and studied by many of the biggest players in the high-tech industry, from Sun Microsystems to IBM to Intel. The Cathedral & the Bazaar is a must for anyone who cares about the future of the computer industry or the dynamics of the information economy. Already, billions of dollars have been made and lost based on the ideas in this book. Its conclusions will be studied, debated, and implemented for years to come. According to Bob Young, "This is Eric Raymond's great contribution to the success of the open source revolution, to the adoption of Linux-based operating systems, and to the success of open source users and the companies that supply them." The interest in open source software development has grown enormously in the past year. This revised and expanded paperback edition includes new material on open source developments in 1999 and 2000.

Raymond's clear and effective writing style accurately describing the benefits of open source software has been key to its success. With major vendors creating acceptance for open source within companies, independent vendors will become the open source story in 2001.

About the Authors
Eric is an Open Source evangelist and author of the highly influential paper "The Cathedral and the Bazaar."

A good read for people wanting to know how/why open source works

It is an influential book that was written during the initial days of open-source/free software movement ( yes, there is a difference between open-source & free software ! )

The influence of it can be judged by the fact that it made Netscape switch to open-source and the result is what we call today as "Firefox". ( & there is a fairly good chance you are reading this on it. I am. :) )

It is a celebrated book which two project management techniques, namely,

One with few people, fixed goals and limited flexibility - Microsoft style of working. It is a more closed, control...

It is an influential book that was written during the initial days of open-source/free software movement ( yes, there is a difference between open-source & free software ! )

The influence of it can be judged by the fact that it made Netscape switch to open-source and the result is what we call today as "Firefox". ( & there is a fairly good chance you are reading this on it. I am. :) )

It is a celebrated book which two project management techniques, namely,

One with few people, fixed goals and limited flexibility - Microsoft style of working. It is a more closed, controlled model of working where the entire development of a product relies on few talented people. He ( author ) gives it an epithet Cathedral style.

And the other with a large self-motivated community, with a common goal of making the product better. There are no fixed goals here, it changes as new ideas come in. There are multiple authors each one bringing in and improving the product a feature at a time. The authors would not remain with it for the entire life cycle. In fact, the opposite happens - old ones leave, new ones join in. The project is headed by the biggest contributors and is handed over to new ones as soon as they stop contributing.

In short, Linux style of working. The author gives it an epithet Bazaar style of working.

Interesting tidbits about why and how a bazaar style works. He starts off as a skeptic and end the book as a true believer in the methodology.

Final Verdict : A good read for people who are keen to know more about Open source and how it works.

Note : The book is available as a free download in pdf across the web. ( This book is an open-source book. ) But in case you want to buy a physical book, you can do that as well. ( Although is costs a bombshell in India )
