This out-of-print gem is available from its creators for free to anyone willing to download the PDF. As the name implies, this is not a balanced view of UNIX, it is a blatant slap in the face of everything the operating system stands for. While the pages are hosted on a Microsoft research server, the book was not commissioned by MS, nor is it officially endorsed as the MS bible.

A compelling piece of technology history, the UNIX-HATERS Handbook is a must download for every geek.
