      Book review, New York Times:

      Keith Curtis, an 11-year veteran of Microsoft, takes a
      programmer’s approach in Software Wars, attempting to
      systematically build a case that free software can help pave
      the way for a 21st-century renaissance in many fields
      ranging from artificial intelligence (cars that drive
      themselves) to the human journey into space (space
      elevators). For Keith, free software is all about leveraging
      our collective intelligence.

      John Markoff, New York Times

      Self-serving Wikipedia writeup (ad?):

      AFTER THE SOFTWARE WARS is a book by Keith Curtis about free software
      and its importance in the computing industry, specifically about its
      impact on Microsoft and the proprietary software development model.

      The book is about the power of mass collaboration and possibilities of
      reaching up to a singular rationale showing successful collaborative
      examples in open source such as Linux and Wikipedia.

      Keith Curtis attended the University of Michigan, but dropped out to
      work as a programmer for Microsoft after meeting Bill Gates in
      1993. He worked there for 11 years, and then left after he found he
      was bored.

      He then wrote and self-published After the Software Wars to explain
      the caliber of free and open source software and why he believes Linux
      is technically superior to any proprietary operating system.
