Open Source

As the title implies, this post is about open source. Some people will go like, “Open source? What’s that?” Open source just means that some program, be it something as large as an operating system or as small as a calculator, is freely editable and usable by anyone in the world, free of cost. (Most of these projects ask for donations.) Linux is open source. Well, you ask, “Why doesn’t everyone use open source?” The main reason for that is most open source projects don’t offer support in the form of a telephone number. Instead, they use a forum to ask you, the people, to report bugs and features. I know for ¬†fact that some people think that they should be getting much better support. They are used to support that will be with them 24/7, the entire year.
