What is Open Source?
Open-source software is software whose source code is
published and made available to the public, enabling anyone
to copy, modify and redistribute the source code without
paying royalties or fees. Open source code evolves through
community cooperation and collaboration. These
communities are composed of individual programmers as well
as very large companies. Traditional proprietary companies
compete with each other and software solutions must be
invented anew for each company which wastes valuable
resources. In contrast, open source communities and
companies collaborate their resources to build software much
more efficiently. It has been reported that open-source
software has resulted in at least $60 billion dollars in savings
to consumers.
