Open Source Software Licenses

OPEN SOURCE CONCEPT

A few weeks ago I wrote a post on the Teldat blog about open source software. I explained how we were seeing the tremendous growth in the use of open source software in recent years. So much so, that the top acquisitions within the technology sector in last year have been for open source software. In that post, I gave an explanation of the advantages and disadvantages to using open source software in comparison to proprietary software or closed source software. However, as I explained then, the trends all indicate that the open source software market is going to increase at a fast rate, hence I have decided to write a new post in order to go one step deeper into this market and explain the important role that licenses play within these types of software and the main differences between them.

Open Source or Proprietary software?

Open sourceOpen source software landed more than thirty years ago, but over the past few years we have seen a tremendous growth in the open source software community, taking a stronger hold in the market in comparison to proprietary software (closed source software). Indeed, before proprietary software was a clear leader. However, the tendency is changing, as more and more CIO’s and CTO’s are moving towards open source. During 2018 we have seen many of the world’s top software companies recognize this phenomenon and have directly acquired various major open source companies. Some of the acquisitions announced last year were huge and were even placed in the top ten acquisitions ever made in the technology sector.

Many kinds of multiprocessing systems

multiprocessing Multiprocessing is the use, within the same system, of several CPUs that share resources among them. There are many kinds of multiprocessing systems and they vary according to different aspects. Their type will first depend on the location of the CPUs (i.e., whether they are on the same die, chip or on the same board).

How to be a leader in technology without losing anonymity

PC´s It is well known that, ever since they first appeared in the 80s, PCs have CPUs with Intel architecture. The fact that there are many systems based on PCs is also common knowledge. However, the general public may be unaware of the features of embedded systems around us (such as cell phones, tablets, vehicles, appliances…).
