BusinessWeek's cover story (01.31.05), "Linux Inc.," is also a great piece of work. The industry analysis is fascinating/perceptive, but I was especially drawn to the excellent & detailed operational portrayal of how Linux works & innovates. Linux may well be a Genuinely New Life Form in the world of organizations ... replicable across many industries. (One wonderful open-source "motto": "Give a little, take a lot." And as I said, applicability is doubtless Universal. For starters, it's light years beyond the recently hip "virtual organization.")
