Sorting out the True from the False in Current Thinking
On mission to dispel (or confirm) some of the current myths concerning open source, Wenjia Zhao of Forbes tackles the subject with sufficient candor to admit his own level of misinformation. Zhao consulted Karl Fogel of Open Souce Initiative, to whom he put these questions:
- Open source means that the source is open to view
- Open source software is free
- Open source software cannot be commercial
- Open source software is crowd-sourced and vice versa
Fogel confirmed that one of the "myths" is true, the other three false. Test your open source belief system against the expert.
