The '''Open Source Initiative''' is an organization dedicated to promoting [[open-source software]].
 
 
The organization was founded in February 1998, by [[Bruce Perens]] and [[Eric S. Raymond]], prompted by [[Netscape Communications Corporation]] publishing the [[source code]] for its [[flagship]] [[Netscape Communicator]] product.  Later, in August 1998 the organization added a board of directors.
 
 
Raymond was president from its founding until February 2005.  The current president is [[Michael Tiemann]].
 
 
==Relations with the free software movement==
 
Although born from the same history of Unix, Internet free software, and the hacker culture as the "[[Free Software]]" movement as defined by [[Richard Stallman]], the formation of the Open Source Initiative, and the choice of the term "open source" was explicitly chosen to:
 
:''"…dump the moralizing and confrontational attitude that had been associated with 'free software' in the past and sell the idea strictly on the same pragmatic, business-case grounds that had motivated Netscape…"''<ref>http://www.opensource.org/history</ref>
 
 
[[Richard Stallman]] of the [[Free Software Foundation]] criticized this motivation, saying that pragmatic focus of the initiative distracts users from the central moral issues and the freedoms offered by [[free software]], blurring the distinction with semi-free or wholly proprietary software. However, he describes the free software and the Open Source Initiative as separate political camps within the same [[free software community]] and says:
 
:''"We disagree on the basic principles, but agree more or less on the practical recommendations. So we can and do work together on many specific projects."'<ref>{{cite web

==History==
 
The movement was launched in 1998 by [[Jon Hall (programmer)|Jon "maddog" Hall]], [[Larry Augustin]], [[Eric S. Raymond]], [[Bruce Perens]], and others<ref>[http://www.opensource.org/history History of the OSI]</ref><ref>[http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2008/02/12/a-look-back-at-10-years-of-osi.html A Look Back at 10 Years of OSI]</ref>. Raymond is probably the single person most identified with the OSI and the "open source" movement; he was and remains its self-described principal theorist, but does not claim to lead it in any exclusive sense. The open source movement is steered by a loose collegium of elders that includes Raymond, its other co-founders, and such notables as [[Linus Torvalds]], [[Larry Wall]], and [[Guido van Rossum]].
 
 
The founders were dissatisfied with what they saw as the confrontational attitude of the [[free software]] movement, and favored advocating free software exclusively on the grounds of technical superiority (a claim previously made by Raymond in his essay ''[[The Cathedral and the Bazaar]]''). It was hoped that open source and the associated propaganda would become a more persuasive argument to businesses. Raymond's comment was ''"If you want to change the world, you have to co-opt the people who write the big checks."'' ([[Cygnus Support]] had been pursuing exactly this approach for a number of years already, but not advertising it widely.)
 
 
The group adopted the [[Open Source Definition]] for open-source software, based on the [[Debian Free Software Guidelines]], which in turn was based on [[The Free Software Definition]]. They also established the [[Open Source Initiative]] (OSI) as a steward organization for the movement. However, they were unsuccessful in their attempt to secure a [[trademark]] for 'open source', to act as an imprimatur and to prevent misuse of the term. Despite this, the OSI developed considerable influence in the corporate sphere and has been able to hold abuse of the term to a tolerable minimum.{{Fact|date=December 2008}} With the [[Free Software Foundation]] (FSF), it has become one of the hacker community's two principal advocacy organizations.
 
 
The early period of the open-source movement coincided with and partly drove the dot-com boom of 1998─2000, and saw a large growth in the popularity of [[Linux]] and the formation of many open-source-friendly companies. The movement also caught the attention of the mainstream software industry, leading to open-source software offerings by established software companies such as [[Corel]] ([[Corel Linux]]), [[Sun Microsystems]] ([[OpenOffice.org]]), and [[International Business Machines|IBM]] ([[OpenAFS]]). By the time the dot-com boom busted in 2001, many of the early hopes of open-source advocates had already borne fruit, and the movement continued from strength to strength in the cost-cutting climate of the 2001─2003 recession.

Raymond was president from its founding until February 2005. The current president is Michael Tiemann.


Definitions

Free Software

Free Software is software meeting the specifications of the Free Software Movement as expressed by the Free Software Foundation. The movement supports the freedom of the individual user to:

to run a given program, for any purpose to study how that program works and adapt it to their individuals needs (n.b. access to the source code is a precondition for this). to redistribute copies so that the individual can help their neighbor. at a cost or otherwise and without permission from anyone else to improve the program and to release their improvements (and modified versions in general) to the public so that the whole community may benefit if the author chooses to do so (access to the source code is a precondition for this).

They attempt to achieve their goal in practical terms by supporting:

the authoring of software that offers any internal program services at no cost organisations that may charge for any support services related to that software and the release of the source and binary code to the public, however, the author may withhold such releases if they choose to do so


Open Source Software

Open Source software is software meeting the specifications of the Open Source Iniitative (OSI). This movement supports the freedoms of organisations or individuals that wish to develop and release software to market by allowing the users of that software:

  • to run the program but may attempt to limit the purpose
  • to study how the program works and adapt it to their needs (n.b. access to the source code is a precondition for this).
  • to redistribute copies so that they can help their neighbor:
    • at a cost or otherwise and
    • with permission from any organisation or individual holding rights to any internal program services that that program may call on and
  • to improve the program and to compell the individual author to release their improvements (and modified versions in general) to the public so that the whole community benefits (access to the source code is a precondition for this). <\li> They attempt to achieve their goal in practical terms by supporting: the authoring of software that may offer any internal program services for a cost. organisations that may charge for any support services related to that software and the release of the source and binary code to the public where the author is compelled to release such changes at all times.
