I'm just not so sure about the book's accuracy. An article I wrote, making use of some facts and ideas from Free As In Freedom, prompted Richard Stallman to e-mail me, and although I hadn't explicitly referred to the book in my article, Stallman volunteered that it sounded like some of my facts were wrong because I got them from that book. One thing that I'm not sure about, and that Stallman specifically objected to, is Williams' use of Stallman as an icon of the Cathedral approach to free information, as opposed to Eric Raymond as the paragon of the Bazaar method.
Information wants to be free, so make some free information.
