Open Source Software

Chris Walton

In this talk I will be discussing Open Source Software (OSS). OSS is an umbrella term applied to the software development process associated with certain free software projects, e.g. Linux, Apache, etc. In my talk I will attempt to define the OSS approach, and outline the advantages and disadvantages of this approach over conventional closed-source development methodology.
