Open Source Software Fundamentals Originally Free Software Freedom to Run, Change and Redistribute Licenses – GNU GPL (Code) and GNU FDL (Doc) The Freedom provides openness Hence, also referred as Open Source Software Over time FS & OSS have differed But still largely same Latest Complete Definitions FS: http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html OSS: http://www.opensource.org/osd.html
  5. 5. 5© 2010-15 SysPlay Workshops <workshop@sysplay.in All Rights Reserved. OSS: Industry Advantage Stable Software – Less Development Cycle Whole Community Support Time to Market And most of all, today OSS provides almost a complete set of software required for any kind of software development Applications, GUIs, Utilities, … - All GPL or LGPL stuff Languages – Whole set from the world :) C Compiler – gcc & friends Debuggers – gdb & friends Profilers, Tracers, ... and the list goes on
