What do we really know about open vs closed sourced software?

Open sourced and closed source two types of software codes. Open-source refers to software that is available for anyone to access / modify.

Some examples of an open sourced software include:

  • WordPress
  • Android
  • FireFox
  • Internet Explorer
  • Moodle

On the other hand, closed source (proprietary software) refers to the software being closed from the public meaning no one can edit it and it is solely owned by the company or individual who developed the software.

Some examples of a closed sourced software include:

  • Apple
  • McAfee Anti-Virus Software
  • Adobe Acrobat
