Why Open Source Software?
Open Source software is computer code that is transparent and can be improved upon by anyone willing to add the code. It is free to use, updated regularly, and in many cases more secure than closed software. This is because open source software grants the user a license to use, study, change, and distribute the software and its source code to anyone and for any purpose.
Why is Open Source Software Important?
Most people never see the code they use, they don’t know where it comes from, or what it really does. They know if it works or not.
Software code is a language that speaks to your computer and controls your interactions with it. That language that controls your computer can be closed off to you and controlled by the company that owns it . This is called proprietary software. It can be open so that you and your community of users can view, share, and changed it for the betterment of everyone.
Open Source Software allows people control over their computer. It’s not controlled by a company, an individual, or the government. This allows communities access to a myriad of applications, most of which cost nothing and can run on old cheap computers. It provides the ability to do many things on a computer that many people can’t afford to do with expensive software.
