I'd like to mention two books I heard about.
Their titles ("Free Software Free Society" and
"Free as in Freedom") sounds more of politics than
technology, so it is not what I wished for in my other
posts, but that doesn't mean they are uninteresting,
of course.

These two books are PDFs which makes them ideal to
print (just use 'lrp -P PRINTER FILE'). We are allowed
to do that so it isn't even piracy. The first file,
tho named as a PDF, is according to file(1) 'gzip
compressed data, from Unix', but gunzip can be used,
either with the -S option or just a rename to a '.gz'
suffix - here, I don't know what's worse, the
incorrect suffix or gunzip caring about suffixes and
not working unless I account for that. But that
shouldn't stop anyone from reading the books.
