The Daemon, the Gnu, and the Penguin
In addition to providing a history of free and open source, The Daemon, the Gnu, and the Penguin examine how free and open software is transforming the world. It is written by renowned UNIX, open source, Internet historian Peter H. Salus, the author of Casting the Net, and other works, including A Quarter Century of UNIX. The history and context of free and open source software have been documented by Salus through interviews with well over a hundred important figures. In his book, Salus reaches back into the history of computing, demonstrating that there was free software even in the “pre-UNIX” era, and quickly advances to the current Free Software movement and what it means for the future, drawing parallels and connections from various facets of economics and life.
