Author, Jasper Nuyens, a Linux veteran was asked about his feelings. "Well, this is a strange situation", he replied, "like the movie from Quentin Tarantino, it is occurring more and more that works are distributed online even before they are available for purchase through the normal sales channels".
The author, however indicated that he isn't that sad with this event. "I don't make my living from selling books. If more people attend our courses based upon the books, than that's great, if more learn to program in C on Linux, that's great too." Mr. Tarantino might not share his feelings, but in the music industry too, some artists shift away their focus from selling CDs to selling tickets for their performances.
"Maybe a similar model is possible for book distribution", Mr Nuyens continued. He added that he will not be taking steps against further distribution of his book. "The sharing through BitTorrent of the book actually helps its distribution, so I don't see it as a bad thing at all."
