Tell It All,

This review is from: Free for All: How LINUX and the Free Software Movement Undercut the High-Tech Titans (Hardcover)
This is an important subject but the author does not do the hard work of putting all of the information together in a coherent form. The chapters ramble from topic to topic and the book contains anecdotal stories that do not support the main points well. Also, the author uses analogies that are meant to be witty but instead detract from the point. The author is very knowledgeable and does a good job of explaining open source software (2 stars), but in my opinion fails to explain the book's subtitle. There's little real info about how Linux & open source are undercutting Microsoft, Sun etc. That analysis should be the author's next book.
