Coming from a background in physics, I have a love of detail and mathemical modelling... I love open source because it allows people to share their creativity, be it musings or mature product, in an exacting, usable, and inspiring way.  Open Source lowers the barriers to entry into someone else's creations.

As a result, we have been able to develop what I like to think of as "cathedrals of our age", creations that many artisans have devoted lifetimes of work to produce, such as the linux kernel.

Open Source is collaboration. It's amazing to see projects that are running literally the whole world being developed in the open, being able to always jump in and leave a mark.

It's empowering. You know that you really own what you use.

Now, take it and make something with it. Make it better. Create something propietary, doesn't matter. But use Open Source, the community will always be there for you <3

Open source enables the best minds to collaborate and work together to achieve a certain goal and doesn't stop there itself.  That is what I love about Open Source. Not only are their new ideas, innovation, but there are communities that build up and grow together which just takes it to another level.

Opensource invites innovation. Makes you grow by sharing your work and driving others to adapt and grow at the same time. It invites collaboration to build something solid!

Open source is great because it allows those with less means access to the technologies which can be studied and used to improve their lives.

I love Open Source because it allows a global contribution from a pool of brilliant minds, to contribute to software for the Linux world, where they may not be able to do so otherwise.
