FOSS

What is FOSS?
FOSS stands for “Free and Open Source Software”. These programs are free for everyone to use and the source code is open to everyone to see. This allows a better “checks and balances” system than close source since you have different people accessing the code than one trust group (or just one) coder and prevents someone to do harm. My computer science teacher used the electronic voting machines example and he said, “Think about it: who is more likely to rig an election?  A trusted coder (or a small group) who doesn’t need any checks by others or a large community of developers and coders where there is a check and balance system to keep harm away?”
