Open source software

Open source software is software that has its source code made available to the public, allowing anyone to view, modify, and distribute the software. Unlike proprietary software, which is owned by a specific company or individual and cannot be freely modified or distributed, open source software is typically developed and maintained by a community of volunteers or organizations.

Open source software can be used for a wide range of purposes, from operating systems like Linux to web browsers like Mozilla Firefox. Because the source code is freely available, users can modify the software to suit their needs or add new features, and share those modifications with others. This can lead to a collaborative and decentralized approach to software development, with many people contributing to a project and sharing their knowledge and expertise.

One of the benefits of open source software is that it can be more transparent and secure, as anyone can review the code and report any bugs or vulnerabilities. Additionally, it can be more cost-effective than proprietary software, as users do not have to pay for licensing fees or support services.
