OReilly has another book now.  It's got a llama instead of a camel.  It's
more introductory than the camel book, and I like it a lot.

It's legal.  Any information which is generally available or available
without an NDA is generally legal to own, and nothing is copyrightable
except by the original author. MS can't dig up information that they
didn't produce and declare it copyrighted.  Their copyrights only apply to
code, and to data originating with them.
