Re: Need some suggestions
- Try to asnwer the following questions in your presentation/paper.
Q1. If Microsoft starts selling Windows & Office at an affordable
price (though impossible), say 500Tk for the bundle, should we still
consider switching to Linux? Why? Because we can get a more
user-friendly personal solution at a reasonable price.
Q2. If my company developed an in-house solution for our need, why
should we give away the software with source to our rivals for free?
We already spent money on that project and now helping our rivals to
Q3. Though we get the source along with binary for open-source
software, it is sometimes difficult to understand the code &
architecture because of poor documentation. Isn't it hampers community
Q4. How can we make money by developing extensions for open source
software? Why people still need me, if they can get the solution for free?
Q5. Can I develop open source software on a proprietary system or
proprietary software on an open source platform?
Q6. If I develop software from the scratch, what is logic behind to
make it free? If others can modify, improve and redistribute why
people will come to me for later?
Q7. As a student, how can I get benefited from open source?
Q8. How can I earn money by providing service for open source software?
Q9. Why a poor country like Bangladesh should consider Open Source
Q10. What are the technical advantages of the Open Source model?
Also remember open source and free software are now two different
camps with a little difference in their philosophy; Richard Stallman
doesn't like the term 'Open Source'.
