  2. 3. What exactly is Open Source ?
  3. 4. It is free .
  4. 5. It is open .
  5. 6. It is software for everyone .
  6. 7. Why?
  7. 8. Because people cooperate .
  8. 9. Because people collaborate .
  9. 10. Because people communicate .
  10. 11. And because…
  11. 12. People share what they know.
  12. 14. The idea of giving free software
  13. 15. on the internet
  14. 16. may seem ridiculous
  15. 17. stupid
  16. 18. crazy .
  17. 19. But here are
  18. 20. 10 things about open source
  19. 21. that are worth remembering .
  20. 23. 1.) Software from open source
  21. 24. may be sold or free ly given away
  22. 25. especially that co-developers
  23. 26. who are the users
  24. 27. 2.) Can have access to
  25. 28. the source codes of the software
  26. 29. 3.) Where revision of the codes
  27. 30. is permissible
  28. 31. 4.) As long as the modified version
  29. 32. is indicated to be modified
  30. 33. by another user.
  31. 34. 5.) No one is excluded from
  32. 35. the open source resources
  33. 36. 6.) Even if a little money is involved
  34. 37. to keep a “company” alive
  35. 38. 7.) As long as the rights apply to
  36. 39. everyone who uses the program(s).
  37. 40. 8.) Open source should not
  38. 41. be licensed to bigger software
  39. 42. 9.) Nor should it limit you from
  40. 43. solely using open source with it.
  41. 44. 10.) Keep it free and clean
  42. 45. without finding a loophole or
  43. 46. forcing other users
  44. 47. to agree with you.
  45. 49. With open source, you are
  46. 50. not afraid of bringing it around
  47. 51. not afraid of using it
  48. 52. not afraid of empowering it
  49. 53. because YOU can bring it
  50. 54. because YOU can use it
  51. 55. because YOU can empower it.
  52. 57. Without open source,
  53. 58. there would be no OpenOffice.org An office suit
  54. 59. no Java A programming language
  55. 60. no Blender, GIMP, and 3D animation Image editor
  56. 61. no Linux. An operating system that, today, comes with many different flavours because of user support.
  57. 63. A world without open source
  58. 64. is a world without freedom.
  59. 65. Support Open Source .
  60. 66. Support your freedom .
