Open Source is for me a "way of life". It is not about "getting software for free", it is about freedom - freedom to share, freedom to use, freedom to contribute... Open means "open for everyone" - you can contribute, share ideas and no one cares who are you or where you are from.
Open Sources is a philosophy that grants knowledge could be shared with everybody and grants innovations and modifications should be share with everybody so keeping knowledge among everybody
Freedom to use the most recent technologies without worry about cust and the possibility to learn how this work and even colaborate if this technology doesn't work if you would like.
