I've been always interested, out of the pure self-amusement, in the history of open software used today:
- who were the people which started it and what were the reasons to start
- what were design decisions at the start
- how software evolved over the time
Specifically, I'm interested in following software:
- Linux kernel
Of course, there is plenty of information in Internet to google for, but I thought it would be nice to have list of interesting resources at this site.
I hope some of visitors of this site have similar interest and can share a link or two they found particularly amusing/interesting.
To make this entry more question-like, here's straight question: what are the most interesting/amusing links about history of open source software?
