open source

In production and development, 'open source is a philosophy, or pragmatic methodology that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details[citation needed]. Before the phrase open source became widely adopted, developers and producers used a variety of phrases to describe the concept; open source gained hold with the rise of the Internet, and the attendant need for massive retooling of the computing source code. Opening the source code enabled a self-enhancing diversity of production models, communication paths, and interactive communities. The open-source software movement was born to describe the environment that the new copyright, licensing, domain, and consumer issues created. Here's the Wikipedia page.
