What is Open Source


Open Source. We are all here for it. There is probably no need to explain what it is. But oh well, for the sake of our clean conscience… Open Source is a philosophy or initiative of freely sharing the code with the community of developers, software geeks, end-users, companies, private consumers – basically anyone who might need it. The important part is allowing users to access and modify the code. They may also further distribute new versions of the program created on the basis of the original code. It is not forbidden but – on the contrary – greatly encouraged to make use of any existing, open technology

Open software vs. Free software


In general, Open Source applications are free of charge – although there is no rule against charging for fair work done to the code. Developers are allowed to redistribute any new technology (even if based on the open code) and they might take money for it. Popular way is charging for licenses of such system. In some cases, even though the code stays open for modifications the fee applies.


Just to sum up…

Open-sourced applications can be easily modified by other parties. They are usually free of charge. MintHCM is a great example of those two circumstances.
