The open source revolution has shaken the slowly crumbling foundations
of closed source software, and while it hasn't taken over completely
just yet, the tide is beginning to turn in its favor. Your normal
everyday user may not really understand or appreciate what open source
means, but that doesn't mean that they're not experiencing the effects
of it. One person's vision can literally be transformed into a worldwide
project with an international development team working all hours of the
day to make improvements on the software that they love.
