Open Source in a Nut Shell

Over the years we have used more and more Open Source software both for development work and for our own internal computing requirements.

So what is Open Source? A technical definition would be a software project where the source code is made available under a licence approved by the Open Source Initiative (OSI). There are many variations on the idea but in essence the user enjoys much greater rights than they do with conventionally licensed software. These freedoms can enable rapid development, greater reliability and a lower cost of ownership.
