Free Software or Open Source Software: Let’s Cut To the Chase

83It’s definitely not just the name

Free Software and Open source software feature different licensing requirements, which are promoted by two separate groups. Both are fixated on the availability of source code to the user along with the user’s right to study, alter and freely redistribute the code to others. The thing to note about the GNU General Public License of free software is that the developer can actually charge the user for the “free software”. This begs the question what exactly is free about this type of software. The freedom is that the user has access the source code along with the right to study, modify, alter and distribute the code to others (Free speech, not free beer as they say). An alternative to the General Public License is the BSD license, which allows distribution of the source code only and only if a few specific conditions are fulfilled. The free software ideology is promoted by the Free Software Foundation.

Open source software is not governed by either of these licenses described earlier and is promoted by the Open Source Initiative (OPI), a relatively organization. In this case, the ready to run software is often provided to the user along with the source code. There is no specific license governing such open source software hence we have two additional types of software related to open source – freeware and shareware. Shareware is payable though the user gets a period of free trial. However, access to the source code is not provided as part of the typical shareware license. Freeware users are free to download and use the software but access to source code is not provided. A majority of the true blue open source application developers however provide complete access to their source code and allow users to actively participate in improving the currently available application.
