Open source software, is software which can be used, modified and improved by anyone and can be redistributed freely.

This is different from proprietary software such as Microsoft Word or Excel which is supplied under a licence agreement. Some software might ask you for a fee to use the software, or may limit the number of PC’s the software can be used on and usually prohibits any copying or redistribution.

Open source software is made available under a different type of licence that allows users to use, copy, redistribute and modify the source code.

This software is considered to be “open source” if its source code is available under a licence approved by the Open Source Initiative (OSI).
