O'Reilly is hosting and pushing their new OpenBooks, which are all of their books that are either open-source, and/or out of date. Many of these books have been available for awhile, such as Creating Applications with Mozilla and Version Control with Subversion, aka the red-bean book.

There are also some oddities like Programming the Be Operating System. Yay old skool.
