An enjoyable read!, 15 Aug 2009
This book is an enjoyable read especially if you know a bit about the history of operating systems and their features. Neal Stephenson gives his own metaphors of what each OS represents and criticizes software from the writer's point of view. A nice read if you don't get too picky about the OS wars and a few technical details. It gets more enjoyable if you also read Garrett Birkel's response to Neal Stephenson in 2004 at the former's website!
