Open-source: so much more than just software and freebies

Open-source: so much more than just software and freebies @ ZDNet by Stephen Chapman.

Typically, when you see or hear the words “open-source,” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? For many, “open-source” is synonymous with “free software,” but in reality, it’s so much more than that: it’s a movement; a chance to improve lives; a chance for success; a total lifestyle change. In this article, I hope to shed some light on what open-source really is — and more importantly — why everyone should care about it, or at least be aware of it.
