Abstract

Closed source software, is a type of software that is licensed under the exclusive legal right of its owner. It is also purchasable by users by paying amount of money. Open Source Software (OSS) is software available with its source code under an open source license to study and modify the code. Open Source Software Development (OSSD) is the process to develop OSS. Many industries try using OSSD as they see the advantages of open source compared to closed source software development. This research presents the reasons of recently using OSSD model rather than traditional closed source approach. The result is to show the differences between closed source and open source process and how open source can effect on quality through its particular features. It also identifies and addresses the challenges and benefits faced by the users against traditional closed source model.
