    1. Joey on said:

      I can t give this a star rating It began excellently, and ended in irrelevant trivia, and farce.I read this book very much from a personal historical perspective, since I lived the history it recounts and know many of the people in it, either personally or by reputation I also happened to be frequently corresponding with one of the people most quoted in it, for unrelated reasons, as I read it So, really I enjoyed the first 100 or so pages of the book, which covered years before I got very involv [...]

      Reading this made me wish I d learned to code I found this book on a rubbish pile on the way to the station one day and thought it might be interesting to learn about the way Linux developed It covers a lot about the model Linux uses to grow and touches on the open software movement as well, and the challenges it offers to big business However, by the end of the book, it feels like it has run out of steam the last few chapters seem a little disconnected with the narrative of the book as a whole [...]

    3. Premal Vora on said:

      Excellent description of the beginnings of the open source revolution in software Describes the beginning of Linux, where the BSDs came from, who Richard Stallman is and why he thinks the way he does Gave me a bird eye view of the open source landscape while at the same time it zoomed into some of the interesting areas Very lively and unbiased I loved this book I m writing apps in open source languages and using FreeBSD and Linux whenever possible.

    4. Doran Barton on said:

      I purchased Rebel Code Linux And The Open Source Revolution because I was giving a presentation at a local technical conference on the history of open source software I chose to present this topic because I realized many up and coming technical workers and enthusiasts either weren t alive when many milestone events occurred or weren t cognizant of them or their significance This book far exceeded my expectations I was an early adopter of Linux and open source software in the early 1990s, so I wa [...]

    5. Amar Pai on said:

      Eh It started off kinda interesting who isn t inspired by the story of Linux but I got bored Half the book is history of linux distros, and I don t really care about the arcane details of Mandrake vs Red Hat or whatever The chapters on Mozilla and emacs are by the numbers, and I was disappointed by the book s superficial take on open source philosophy issues Also, since it came out in 1991, it feels frustratingly dated e.g the discussion of Apple s response to the linux threat is rendered quite [...]

      An Extensive History of Freedom Fighting in CyberspaceThe fight for freedom is one of the most discussed subjects in arts and literature The glorification of the deeds of freedom fighters and the refinement of their personalities to fit in the heroic molds manufactured through public perception is not something strange to historians, as well as to artists and writers Most of what we know about our historic heroes is sufficient to give them god like traits and gain them a cult following, guarante [...]

    8. Marko on said:

      A pretty good history of the open source software movement although focus is on the 90 s The book is outdated by now and has some stuff that is a bit funny with the aid of hindsight Companies long dead are lauded and technologies that never quite got off are the next big thing Neverthless, I learned quite a few new things even though I have been following OSS movement and Linux from their infancy just as a sidenote, OSS was coined in the late 90 s, before that it was called Free Software.For som [...]

    9. Andrew Updegrove on said:

      When you live through history, it s easy to assume that someone else will take the time to record, analyze and present what happened so that there is a reliable account available for the future That s sure to happen when you re speaking of affairs of state, but it becomes less so as you move out through the concentric rings of existence from the diplomatic bullseye.The emergence of the open source business model and community ethos related but not at all the same thing has already had a profound [...]

    10. Alexander on said:

      Linus Torvalds has always been a bit of a polarizing character, for those in the open source community Some, like myself, are fans and think that he is not only a brilliant software engineer and enigmatic leader, but also a great storyteller and creative mind Others think he is a buffoon with too much control over the open source movement, much too opinionated and stubborn to be a leader, and to top it off, not a great coder either This book delves into his life from childhood to modern day at l [...]

    11. Brian on said:

      Great read about the beginnings of Linux and other open source projects The first few chapters on Linux specifically were fascinating, and very encouraging to see how just a few people can start a project so large.The middle and end of the book dragged on a bit long Unfortunately, the book becomes difficult to follow after the first few chapters, as many new projects and individuals are introduced The segues are brief and forced, and often connect topics with no relation at all leaving the reade [...]

    12. S.M. Johnson on said:

      I m torn on how to rate this book On the one hand, it was a very comprehensive and well written read about the origins of many popular open source projects such as Linux, Mozilla, GIMP, GNU, and so forth On the other hand I feel that it was possibly too comprehensive the book is very long, and unless you are already acquainted with Linux and open source I feel that there aren t many people out there who will be interested in all the nitty gritty details of, say, gtk or X Window System.That said, [...]

    13. Mosborne01 on said:

      It really needs an update given it was written in 2001, but this is really the definitive story of Linus Torvalds and the kernel that set the free software up for the dominance it currently enjoys It s thorough I learnt about coding than I thought possible, and his Moody recounts, almost line by line, significant newsgroup posts from Torvalds and his key collaborators, but if you re at all interested in free software or linux, this is good read.

    14. Magda Głażewska on said:

      Truly inspiring I had no idea about programming before reading this still haven t but, interestingly, lots of unfamiliar terminology didn t make it difficult to understand The story behing development of Linux and the open source revolution is absolutely captivating and bound to make you want to learn how to code or at least try and install Linux on your PC.

    15. Francis on said:

      Very nice I had been putting it off for a while but its very instructive of the early years of the open source movement I d love to put my hands on an up to date version this second edition was published in 2002 and it seemed like Linux would take over though 10 years later Mac OSX has taken a party, but MS remains king in the OS worldf.

    16. Jeffrey Hendricks on said:

      Not too bad of a read, though it is mostly historical The few personal stories it shares are few and far between As others have noted, the latter half of the book isn t nearly as interesting as the first half.

    17. Raphael on said:

      A must read for anyone who is curious about Hacker Culture Although it is pretty biased I.E The Big Bag Microsoft vs The Great and Good Linux , it does a good job explaining the origins of the FOSS and OSS movements Even though it s pretty dated now, any technology enthusiast should read it.

    18. Nathan Campos on said:

      Very interesting book Describes in detail the history of the open source movement until 2002 Really a must read for all developers and geeks.

    19. Cody on said:

      Lingo can be tough to follow at times for lay people, but an exciting read on the history of open source.

    20. Pteridium on said:

      Written 14 years ago and I knew most of the info already It didn t keep me interested as well as most other tech history books I have read.

    21. Caroline Gordon on said:

      Entertaining and interesting account of the history of open source software development and the people that drove it.

    22. Bob on said:

      Interesting book about the evolution of free and open source software It explains the hard work, strategy, and luck which made Linux the amazing OS it is today.

    23. Karthikeyan Ramaswamy on said:

      Reading about the history of open source is really good but i feel like the book is outdated May be Rebel code 2.0 is needed

    24. Zack on said:

      Ok I didn t totally read it I couldn t get into it But I got the movie that was based on this and really liked that.
