What is open source? That means in a software for which  source codes  and certain other rights normally reserved for copyrights holders are provided under a software license  that meets the Open source definition . This permits users to use, change, and improve the software, and to redistribute it in modified or unmodified forms. It is very often developed in a public, collaborative manner. Open source software is the most prominent example of open source development and often compared to user generated content. The term open source software originated as part of a marketing campaign for free software.
