The Open Source Definition

The Open Source Definition
Open source doesn't just mean access to the source code. The distribution terms of open-source software must comply with the following criteria: 1. Free Redistribution The license shall not restrict any party from selling or giving away the software as a component of an aggregate software distribution containing programs from several different sources. The license shall not require a royalty or other fee for such sale. 2. The program must include source code, and must allow distribution in source code as well as compiled form. 3. The license must allow modifications and derived works, and must allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license of the original software. 4. The license may restrict source-code from being distributed in modified form only if the license allows the distribution of "patch files" with the source code for the purpose of modifying the program at build time. 5. The license must not discriminate against any person or group of persons. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

What is open source, and what is the Open Source Initiative Open source is a term describing a means of developing and distributing software that ensures software is available for use, modification, and redistribution by anyone.

Open source practice promotes software reliability and quality by supporting independent peer review and rapid evolution of source code. The Open Source Initiative (OSI) is a non-profit corporation whose goal is to promote the use of open source software in the commercial world.

Why Open Source Software / Free Software (OSS/FS, FOSS, or FLOSS)? Look at the Numbers! Translations available: Czech | French | Japanese | Spanish David A. Wheeler Revised as of April 16, 2007 This paper provides quantitative data that, in many cases, using open source software / free software (abbreviated as OSS/FS, FLOSS, or FOSS) is a reasonable or even superior approach to using their proprietary competition according to various measures. Business models [ Overview ] [ References ] [ Frameworks ] Overview There is a small but growing research literature on the business models of technology entrepreneurs.

Open Source Software and Documents: A Literature and Online Resource Review Introduction Open source software (OSS) and open source documents (OSD) are a rising star in technology today. The term "open source" was coined merely two years ago (1998)1, and is now a media buzzword (Raymond, 205). With its rapidly growing market share and corporate and public interest to match, open source as a concept will not stay a fringe phenomenon for long; in fact, it is rapidly entering the mainstream.

Is Open Source Right For Your Organization This article originally ran in the November 1 edition of The NonProfit Times. Lots of people seem to be talking about “open source” software these days, but for non-techies, it’s not always easy to find out more about this option. The term “open source” itself means that the actual source code written by programmers can be viewed, modified or downloaded by anyone, and the software is typically developed, marketed and distributed by a loosely organized community of individuals rather than a vendor. It’s often distributed for free.
