How E-Entrepreneurs Operate in the Context of open Source Software

chapter
posted on 2008-01-01, 00:00 authored by Ambika Zutshi, Samar Zutshi, Amrik Sohal
The Internet has become an integral part of our everyday lives and it is often difficult to imagine how we ever functioned without it. This chapter presents experiences of two entrepreneurial companies, one of which has survived the ‘dot-com bubble burst.’ The chapter identifies current and future online business environments especially in light of open source software (OSS) being accepted globally. Unlike proprietary software (such as Windows), OSS comes with its internal implementation details (source code) visible both to its developers and users, along with the freedom to change and redistribute this source. The significant implications of this unique style of software distribution for e-entrepreneurs are examined.
