What is Open Source Software (OSS)?

Open source is a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process. The promise of open source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in. [2009, http://opensource.org]

What does this mean for your business? Well, it means that your company is legally able to afford powerful software applications that normally costs hundred or even thousands of dollars to license and use. For example, most small businesses need office productivity software for composing documents, checking e-mail, and sharing information. That software from a major vendor can initially cost hundreds of dollars to purchase and potentially cost more and more to maintain and upgrade over time. Well, OSS is provided free of any charge to your business both today and in the future. To read more about the details of Open Source Software, check out the OSI Website.
