Full Title or Meme

Open Source Software means just, and only, that. The software source code is opening available to all, typically on a free web site like https://github.com.

Problem

  • The opposite is closed source software which is the way that software was originally written.
  • The meaning of Open Source Software is sometimes conflated with Free Open Source Software, which is a common error.
    • For example the Mil-OSS site claims that "Derivative works – The open source software licenses must allow the distribution of software containing modified source code in the same name as of the original software." Which most poeple consider to be a feature of Free Open Source Software.
