Open source software movement had to climb big hurdles to rise to the firm pedestal where it stands today. A notion that had started as early as in 1970s started to gain grounds only towards the culmination of the millennia. The recent spurt in the open source software market and in the open source movement itself makes us ponder on the next logical step. Open Source Hardware? Before we focus on the ‘Open Source Hardware’, let us see how Open Source Software works. Open source software is a software for which the source code is available to its users. Depending on the terms of the license, it can be read, modified, enhanced and redistributed under the same license. In software section, it works fine because the marginal costs involved with the distribution of software is effectively nil.
