Title

4 Big Benefits of Open Source Software Products

Summary

1. fewer mandatory upgrades - this can be a big deal, especially if the proprietary stuff is getting constantly updated. 2. transparency of community support - you feel like people are working together to maintain something, and a lot of it takes place publicly. 3. visible source code - this can be important for security concerns and other reasons 4. an "API" style - lots of interoperability, few formatting gates
