Open Source

Refers to software that is made freely available for potential modification and redistribution by anybody, with collaborative development encouraged. The word “source”” refers to the source code (the basic building blocks of the software). The word “”open”” is used in the sense of being not “”closed”” or blocked. Such software is often available free of charge (entirely legally) for general use. Popular examples of open source software include Libre Office and Audacity.”
