Publication List

This page contains an overview of the different talks and publications about the ROOT system.

Papers NOT by the ROOT team, but related in spirit.
  • The "Bazaar" software development process we try to follow:
    The Cathedral and the Bazaar by Eric S. Raymond.
  • Microkernel vs Monolithic System. Famous discussion between Linus Torvalds and Andy Tanenbaum on the merits of these two approaches. ROOT is often seen, like Linux, as a monolithic system. Both are not doing too bad.
