Computer History -- Open Source Movement

Eric S. Raymond published his essay "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" in latter-1997. Based on his observations of the LINUX kernel development process and his own software management experiences, Raymond described his "Bazaar" model for software development as the basis of Open Source Software. The paper was published as part of a book of the same name in 1999 . It became the manifesto of the Open Source Software movement.
