Why is Linux Hosting a Free Solution?

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Linux hosting  is what is called Open Source software. What is meant by that and what are the benefits of using open source software?

First of all, pilule Open Source software is free. It was originally designed by a group of people that knew they could make an operating system for the Internet that did not have to cost anything. Then something miraculous happens when it is Open Source. People pile on and make changes that help the program, sick some of them offer changes that help them and maybe not others so much, yet, all of the changes that come into the system generally make everything better and more easily used and everyone wins!

This is a very basic way of looking at the way that Open Source works, however, the vast majority of technological advances come from ordinary people that get together and say that they have a better idea. They believe that not everything that is good for the Internet or for technology, in general, has to come from the government or from a big company!
