OS/2 E-Zine: Why Open Source?

“In this article, I’d like add my personal view on licensing
issues and explain why I now think that OpenSource is the software
model which might turn out to be a main condition for OS/2 to
survive at all.”

“I have done a lot more reading on OpenSource software, am
following some of the discussions in the Linux world, and by now I
have almost half a year of experience with this concept from a
developer’s perspective. From my perception, there are many more
advantages to the OpenSource concept which should convince any
freeware programmer to release his/her sources.”
