ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of open source computer software by libraries. Open source software is typically available for no cost, and also allows users to copy, distribute, and modify the program as they please. Several open source desktop applications are analyzed, including the Firefox web browser, which is one of the most popular and widely known open source software tools, the NeoOffice and OpenOffice.org word processing and spreadsheet suites, which rival Microsoft's Office suite, and instant messaging software Gaim.
