What is Open Source?

Author: JT Smith

A Linux World columnist address the question:
"I admit to having my own definition of open source. It is based on the usage I have seen and
heard, not on a philosophy. To me, the term means simply that source code is both freely available
and modifiable. Period. Restrictions on the code's use depend upon the license applied to it, not on
the label."
