[ News, Foreign Relations, September 11 2007] Experts from three Asian countries to discuss open source software development in Seoul

Tech officials and experts from three Asian countries will gather this week in Korea to discuss ways to boost development and improve use of open source software, also called freeware, Seoul officials said Tuesday (Sept.11).

Open source software refers to computer programs that can be available for free, with users allowed to modify and share them by using disclosed software codes. It can be compared with proprietary-style software such as Microsoft's Windows operating system.
