Open source means secure, because if the code is open, anybody can examine it and find anything unwanted like bugs or backdoors etc..

For me, it is the collaboration of many people in the World. People all working together to create the perfect software by gathering all the great ideas and implementing the very best ones into it. Not matter how big or small, every contribution works towards something better.

Open source means code designed in a way that is accessible to the public: everyone can view, modify, and distribute the code in any way they see fit. It's an amazing philosophy
