Open source software is computer software in the public domain whose source code is available under a general use type license that allows users to use, update and improve the software, and to redistribute it in a modified or unmodified form. It is often developed in a public, collaborative manner and is often free. The majority of web sites hosted on the internet are hosted on Open Source Unix servers. I heard this is because in most cases Unix costs less, has been more secure and has more applications written to it.
