Meeting Notes

This is the final topic in our "back to school" season. This time, we'll be answering the question new users to Linux have: What is "open source?"

We'll be discussing the pros and cons to open source and its similarities and differences to free and proprietary/closed source software. We'll also explain what exactly a software license is, and even mention a few popular ones.
