- DID YOU KNOW ? (google for _OPEN SOURCE_)

In general, OPEN SOURCE refers to any program whose source code is
made available for use or modification as users or other developers
see fit. (Historically, the makers of proprietary software have
generally not made source code available.) OPEN SOURCE software is
usually developed as a public collaboration and made freely available.
OPEN SOURCE is a certification mark owned by the OPEN SOURCE
Initiative (OSI). Developers of software that is intended to be freely
shared and possibly improved and redistributed by others can use the
OPEN SOURCE trademark if their distribution terms conform to the OSI's
OPEN SOURCE Definition.

The idea is very similar to that behind free software and the
copyleft concept of the Free Software Foundation. Open source is the
result of a long-time movement toward program that is developed and
improved by a group of volunteers cooperating together on a network.
Many parts of the Unix operating system were developed this way,
including today's most popular version, Linux. Linux uses applications
from the GNU project, which was guided by Richard Stallman and the
Free Software Foundation, . The open source Definition, spearheaded by
Eric Raymond (editor of The New Hacker's Dictionary), is an effort to
provide a branded model or guideline for this kind of program
distribution and redistribution. The OSI considers the existing
program distribution licenses used by GNU, BSD (a widely-distributed
version of UNIX), X Window System, and Artistic to be conformant with
the open source Definition.
