What is Open Source Philosophy ?
Open Source software provides an opportunity for people to work on software with others that share the same interest, exchanging ideas, knowledge, and work with one another, to expand and improve the solution.
The motivation for working on Open Source software originates at different sources, which include working on the software for fun as a hobby, to make the software meet own requirements, and to bring commercial interest into the software.
It is this combination of motivations that has brought together a team of developers to successfully make what osCommerce is today - and what it will be in the future - and an active and growing community, with each person having their own unique requirements but ultimately sharing the same goal: to use the software and to make it a better solution.
Open Source software always remains open providing the opportunity for anyone that is interested to work on it, at any time.
Because Open Source software is open, it provides a choice. The choice to use the software, the choice to learn the software, and the choice to join, share, and participate in a community - a community full of enthusiastic supporters that want to see the software grow and succeed.
It is this very reason why Open Source software is successful, and most importantly, why it works.
