Appendix B. Open Source Licenses
"Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others."Albert CamusThe open source community is a wonderful thing to behold. Comprised of independent developers from all over the world, it is a rich, varied, and continuously evolving repository of software, ideas, and knowledge. Backed by all this enthusiasm and expertise, it's no wonder that many open source software projects are faster, are more robust, and have a richer feature set than their commercial counterparts.The various open source applications and projects discussed within this book are all products of this community effort. All are available free of charge online, and all are licensed under different open-source licenses. This appendix contains the relevant license agreements.
