open source software blog

SpectSoft is a website dedicated to bringing you the latest in open source software. Open source software is, strictly speaking, not freeware, just that the code is shipped with the product. However, because the code is open, anyone can edit and revise the code and do with it as they wish. Multiple levels of customization have resulted from this concept.

Open source software, has been often times mistaken to be free because the code is freely distributed. It also assumes that anyone who has an understanding of the language can try to recreate, or to duplicate their own same program. For this reason alone, a lot of open source programs are available for free, with the only restriction that the distribution should always include the open source agreement and the original code.

We believe that open source is an alternative solution to a lot of issues which have come up from modern operating systems and business requirements.

We are here to discuss and blog about what open source software can do for you, as well as open source alternatives to popular paid programs. If you have any input about the programs, issues, concerns, the discussions, and about open source in general, please feel free to drop us a line. We would be more than happy to pick up the thread and spread the news.

Contact us and we will get back to your questions, clarifications and other messages.
