WHAT IS FOSS?
FOSS stands for Free and Open Source Software.As far as my concern,LEARN- DEVELOP – DEPLOY is the motto of FOSS.
What FOSS Provides?
SERVE : FOSS provides full freedom to use the software to meet your own requirements.
STUDY : FOSS provides freedom to Study and modify the software.
SHARE : FOSS provides freedom to Redistribute the modified as well as original version of the software.
- The term FREE refers to FREEDOM not the cost
- It does not mean no cost it refers to the fact that the software is free of any conditions (or) rules.
The software provides the following four freedoms:
- Gives full freedom to meet one’s own requirements.(i.e) can be used for any purpose
- to study the software
- to modify the software
- to redistribute the modified (or) original versions of the software.
We will see about the types of software in my next post.Feel free to post your comments.
