Abstract :
In today’s scenario, Open source software needs no formal introduction. In this technological era everyone is using this in their own way. Multinational companies come up with new versions of their software regularly; these are called open source software. Thousands of researchers building some tools or techniques on a global platform together which are in no way lesser in features when compared to their commercial counterparts. In fact if we go ask and discuss with Open Source enthusiast, we feel that they are much more efficient, reliable, and over all customizable. Most of the demanding software of these days is based on open-source technology. IBM to Google, Firefox to Wikipedia. Open Source communities like Ubuntu share the principle of “Shared efforts, Shared principles, No cost.” that’s why we get some free software easily with less effort.
