What the heck is Open Source?

Anonymous Reader writes "The phrase "open source license" refers to a large number of agreements that license the copyrights inherent in software widely, fairly, and with the fewest restrictions possible. While all open source licenses share similar intentions, each license typically accomplishes its goal by different means. This article, written by Editor in Chief of the Linux Magazine Martin Streicher, describes the tenets of copyright and explains the intents of an open source license."
