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:

http://www.opensource.org/ Open Source Initiative

http://www.opensource.org/halloween/
leaked Microsoft documents on competing against Open Source
annotations and refutation by Eric Raymond

http://www.oswg.org/oswg-nightly/oswg/en_US.ISO_8859-1/articles/OSWG-Catalog/oswg-catalog/philosophy.html
Open Source Writers Group site has some essays by Alan Cox, one
of the key Linux kernel developers

http://www.fsf.org 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.
