Erik Raymond has written an article with the above title. It's excellent,
and I strongly that everyone here, particularly those few who regularly post
questions which indicate that they have not made any attempt to solve their
own problem, have a read of it.
It is, as is all of ESR's writing, clear and lucid. ESR comes across, as
usual, as a smart guy, and if he could only get rid of his silly obsession
with mechanical devices designed to efficiently kill other human beings, I'm
sure he'd be a first class world citizen.
