3.2. Released September 17, 1991

3.3. 4 Freedom in OSS

3.3.1. OSS allows the users to change any desires components of the program as the source code is open to the public which gives them more freedom to work their programs.

3.4. Advantages

3.4.1. Lesser hardware costs

3.4.2. High quality software

3.4.4. Integrate management

3.4.5. Abundant support

3.5. Benefits

3.5.1. Cost The majority of OSS is distributed freely, making it very cost-effective.
