The aim of OSSBlog is to promote everything open source: software, hardware, publications etc. The term “open source” refers to something we can modify and share because its design is publicly accessible. So open source software is software with source code that anyone can view, modify, and improve.
Some of the reasons to develop and use open source software are:
- Business agility – create new applications quickly, reliability, and economically
- Improves the quality and security of the software as the source code can be viewed by anyone
- Potential for a more flexible technology and quicker innovation
- Keeps costs down
