What is Open Source?

It is defined as open source as the software released under the licenses approved by the [Open Source Initiative].

Why it is important an Open Source strategy for OS/2 and eComStation

It is important to ensure the future of the OS. We currently have dependencies on IBM and Serenity System. If any of those two companies stops the support, OS/2 and eComstation are not going to be able to change and improve in the future.

On the other hand, if the operating system turns open source, there could be more players that will be willing to enhance the OS and also have more companies interested on providing OS/2-eCS support.

So Open Sourcing OS/2-eCs it is important for the future of the platform.
