It started as a simple idea and now its becoming more and more of a commercial hot watch. The idea was to mitigate some of the drawbacks of traditional software development cycles. When developers can read, modify and redistribute source, it evolves. People can evolve it, fix it and the best part is the speed at which this transition takes place. But its not just about publishing source code. I plan to go into the nitty gritties of open source and will discuss licensing and the other aspects. Any suggestions and criticism are welcome. My endeavour is to create a community in india which starts contributing to the open source world. Its time we moved from being the maintainence and support guys to being the creators. The world is set for a revolution which has taken a long time to become commercial. Lets not miss the band wagon.
