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
    • withthout 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).

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.
