Is it better or worse to use Open Source software? The Benefits of Open Source Software

Open Source Software’s Benefits 

Open source software is software that has been made available to the public without any restrictions, allowing users to modify, improve and redistribute the software (Barbachano-Usuga & Bautista-Verdugo, 2020). It can be very useful to any organization, even those that have limited resources. Open-source software is a cheaper alternative to expensive, traditional software. The software also offers the added benefit of transparency, where any security flaws, bugs, or vulnerabilities can be identified quickly and corrected by the large developer community (Luque 2002).  Additionally, open source software is less reliable than the commercial versions which require more restrictive user-licensing permissions. The open-source software allows developers to collaborate directly, allowing for quick resolutions and improvements. Organisations can benefit from this collaboration, which saves both time and money.  Open source software offers many benefits to businesses, including cost savings and increased transparency as well as reliability.    References  Barbachano-Usuga, A., & Bautista-Verdugo, D.
