Open Source software Discussion

https://www.howtogeek.com/129967/htg-explains-what-is-open-source-software-and-why-you-should-care/

Class,

I want to introduce the topic of Open Source software. It is software that is freely available to use and alter. It is often an alternative to closed “proprietary” software.

Read the attached link and consider the following:

1. Does free software imply that is it really good?

2. Are you willing to use software that may be free but has some limitations?

3. Should all software become open source? Is there any that should never become open source?

4. Open source and free software is not necessarily the same thing. What is the difference
