GlobalWorldTech -> Open Source Customization

Open source - is most commonly applied to the source code of software that is made available to the general public with either relaxed or non-existent intellectual property restrictions. This allows users to create user-generated software content through either incremental individual effort, or collaboration.

Some consider open source as one of various possible design approaches, while others consider it a critical strategic element of their operations. The term open source gained popularity with the rise of the Internet and its enabling of diverse production models, communication paths, and interactive communities. [Source : ]

Open Source software provides an opportunity for anyone to use and to learn the software, join and share his views / ideas to other community members and if possible participate/contribute to see the software grow and succeed.
