Open-source software (OSS) is software with its source code made available with a license in which the copyright holder provides the rights to study, change, and distribute the software to anyone and for any purpose.
THE OPEN SOURCE WAY
At ES8, when we talk about “open source,” we’re talking about a proven way of collaborating to create technology. The freedom to see the code, to learn from it, to ask questions and offer improvements: This is the open source way.
Technology built by trust
Open source doesn’t work without trust. Users trust us, other technology companies trust us, and thousands of open source contributors all over the world believe in ESTEEM8.
More eyes. More secure.
While it might seem counterintuitive, open source software is often more secure than proprietary software. In fact, debugging and securing software is part of the essence and common purpose of software communities.
More eyes. Fewer bugs. Sunlight really is the best disinfectant.
