Open Source -- Is it Free?

Suggested by Webmaster on Saturday March 07, 2009

"Open source" has come a long way and with the new administration adopting the open source content management system Drupal to power the Web site, open source's visibility will likely get another big boost. Speaking from the standpoint of a developer, the number of tools, utilities and programs available under open source licensing continues to be very exciting. But it is also true that confusions still persist about what it is and, in particular, about its costs. "Open source" and "free" are not synonymous -- though there is a relationship between the two terms.
