Open Source and Post-Graduation Resources: Open Source

What is Open Source?

Open source software is free to use and just as importantly, allows any developer to improve it. Examples of open products already in your daily life include Firefox, Thunderbird, and Android.

There are high-quality options for word processing, data entry, image editing, blogging, and even ebook creation without having to pay for software subscriptions.

Osalt and Sourceforge are directories of open source software where you can search by the name of a piece of software to find open source equivalents and read reviews.

We are unable to provide technical assistance with this software, but tutorials, user manuals, and online help forums are available from the official sites of these programs.
