There is one philosophy that should guide the online world. There is one truth that must shape it. All codes should be shared. No sources can survive when forced to the common standards, the stifling demands of manufacturers. These offer no rewards. They can provide no relief. Instead they only halt progress, keeping all users trapped to programs that can’t accept the challenges of the modern age. Open codes are therefore essential. And you understand this.
It is not, however, recognized by others.
While all may wish to indulge in the notion of open sources, few actually do. The calls for free software and non-proprietary programs are not accepted among the masses — if only because they are not understood. The developmental process is confusing, leaving many wondering how such functions are even created.
The answer isn’t difficult, however. It instead merely reflects a community ideal.
Open sources are not the burdens many assume them to be. They are instead formed from a collective effort; with countless users producing codes for all to take, allowing them to then be changed again and again. The applications are formed quickly and efficiently, with all individuals able to provide support, thus ensuring that all language is tight and all protocols are put into place. Cooperation is what fuels the idea and allows it to succeed.
It is also the only way open sources can survive. Individuals must become aware of these codes, learning how to both utilize and mimic them. The reliance of distributors,, with their concern for profits rather than ease, must stop. Free programs must instead be made available to all; with communities developing these functions and allowing them to flourish. No singular individual can benefit from the copyleft mentality. Instead it must be offered to all.
And development must continue with the aid of the many, not the few.
