About Open Source Software
The source code for open source software is publicly available, allowing anyone to modify and use it. In comparison, a specific organization generally owns and controls the code base for proprietary software. The development of open source software is a naturally collaborative process that allows a large group of developers to contribute their unique talents towards creating innovative software, which is often underutilized when developing proprietary software.
Open source software also lowers the barriers to entry for developers since it’s free to use, allowing developers to incorporate it into projects with minimal risk. This ease of access is one of the primary driving factors behind the rapid adoption of open source technology.
