So, you want to start using that open source thing.
You've been reading Opensource.com and there's a package that you're excited about. You'd love to give it a try and maybeâjust maybeâfind a way to contribute to the community that made it (if, you know, it turns out as awesome as that article you found says it is). But where to start?
Every package is a little differentâsome run on different operating systems than your home machine, some have different dependencies, some expect a certain minimum level of technical expertise.
