What is Open-source?

Open source software is software with source code that anyone can inspect, modify, and enhance.

What makes Open-source software different from others?

Some software has source code that only the person, team, or organization who created itβ€”and maintains exclusive control over itβ€”can modify. People call this kind of software "proprietary" or "closed source" software.

Open source software is different. Its authors make its source code available to others who would like to view that code, copy it, learn from it, alter it, or share it. Mozilla Firefox, GNU/Linux, jQuery. etc. are some examples of open-source projects.
