Open source software (OSS) and technologies are free to use subject to the minimal requirement of attribution. Open source community believes in sharing and growth of knowledge to as many people as possible. An open source software (OSS) creator usually grants the rights to study, change, and distribute the software and its source code to anyone and for any purpose.
OSS relies upon the concept of open collaboration where the knowledge of public at large is pooled to create a software/hardware/tool. This helps in creating a more reliable, robust and secure software/hardware/tool as the process involves utilisation of vast knowledge and testing capabilities of masses that a closed source software/hardware/tool cannot achieve.
More coming soon.
