There's also a collection of essays called "Open Sources" with papers
by Eric, Bob Young (founder of Red Hat), and others. I found that
quite interesting.

Other interesting things on the web include: Open Source Initiative
leaked Microsoft documents on competing against Open Source
annotations and refutation by Eric Raymond
Open Source Writers Group site has some essays by Alan Cox, one
of the key Linux kernel developers Free software Foundation

I didn't buy it because there's only one chapter I hadn't already read,
on the web or as a magazine article.
