Open Source Technology
Open source software is made available free of charge to the general public. The rationale for this is that a large community of developers who are not concerned with proprietary ownership will produce a more useful and bug-free product for everyone's benefit. The open source concept relies on community members to find and eliminate bugs in the program code, a process which commercially developed and packaged programs do not utilize. The process of eliminating bugs and improving the software happens at a much quicker rate than through the traditional development channels of commercial software. The information is shared throughout the open source community and does not originate nor channel through a corporation's research and development department
It is open source technology that has fuelled the growth of the Internet over the last six years with key applications such as Sendmail, Linux, Apache and BIND, languages like PHP and Perl, database application like Postgre SQL and MYSQL, and mark-up languages such as HTML, WML and XML.
