1.0. INTRODUCTION

Meaning of Open Source Software (OSS)
Open source software (OSS) is defined as computer software for which the source code and certain other rights normally reserved for copyright holders are provided under a software license that meets the Open Source Definition or that is in the public domain. This permits users to use, change, and improve the software, and to redistribute it in modified or unmodified forms.

Meaning of Hardware
A computer's hardware consists of the physical components necessary to operate and interact with a computer. Since a computer's primary language is binary, devices are necessary to convert our input into that language. The binary code coming out of the computer must also be translated into something usable for the operator. Meaning of Software

Software is often divided into two categories:
1. System software: Includes the operating system and all the utilities that
enables the computer to function.
`2. Application software: Includes programs that do real work for users.For example, word processors, spreadsheets, and database management systems fall under the category of applications software.
