Open Source Software
As the name implies, Open Source software is open, in that the source code used to create programs is readily available, and anyone with the inclination is free to examine, use, modify, or improve upon the existing source code. Any derivative works, intended for distribution, must remain Open Source. With proprietary software the source code is not generally available outside of the company that produced it. One of the primary advantages of Open Source is that when a bug in the software is found it is generally fixed sooner, than a bug in proprietary software would be fixed. Proprietary software companies tend to release bug fixes at fixed intervals, whereas a bug fix for Open Source software is generally available shortly after the bug has been discovered.
