What is Open Source

What is Open Source?


Open source software (OSS) refers to a software that is available free with source code , under a license that ensures that derivative works will also be available as source code, protects certain rights of the original authors, and prohibits restrictions on how the software can be used or who can use it.Open-source software can be studied,changed,improved and redistributed provided that the source code of developed software is also open.The ‘open’ in open source software is intended in the philosophical sense of ‘open or free speech’ rather than as a free (ie. no cost) product.
