Open and Closed source

Open and Closed source

Short but sweet, it is pretty straight forward really for this area

I think it would be a good place to start at the difference's between open and closed source. For many this is something they don't understand. Open source is a program that has the source code available with the program so you can do as you wish with the program. Closed source is distribution of the application or program without the source code, in some cases encrypted so that it is impossible to reverse engineer the software.
