The important thing is that not to stop questioning.

When i started learning computer i started with Windows but after sometime I got bored of windows because the cost and spoon feeding of the windows .I want to learn more thats why I switch towards the open source operating system like unix and linux.

I started learning the linux with FEDORA CORE 6 one of the greatest operating system I ever used .

This blog is regarding the open source .

The Open Source Definition

Open source doesn't just mean access to the source code. The distribution terms of open-source software must comply with the following criteria:

1.The license shall not restrict any party from selling or giving away the software as a component of an aggregate software distribution containing programs from several different sources. The license shall not require a royalty or other fee for such sale.

2.The program must include source code, and must allow distribution in source code as well as compiled form. Where some form of a product is not distributed with source code, there must be a well-publicized means of obtaining the source code for no more than a reasonable reproduction cost preferably, downloading via the Internet without charge. The source code must be the preferred form in which a programmer would modify the program. Deliberately obfuscated source code is not allowed. Intermediate forms such as the output of a preprocessor or translator are not allowed.
