THE PROPRIETORY VS. OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE

Making the Right Move with IT in Management Education

Abstract

This paper is a sincere effort to discuss the impact of the open and free source software over the patented software in the field of Management Education. It also throws light into the role of the Government of Kerala – one of the pioneers in the free and open source software revolution in education in India. The various useful and important software that a Management student will have to deal in his/her curriculum is discussed. A Comparison of GNU/Linux (free source software) with the other proprietary software with special reference to the Management education reveals the effect of the software with regard to its cost and usability. This paper will provide readers with an understanding of both open source and proprietary methodologies and help explain why GNU/Linux and open source is possibly the driving force behind the future of computing which would naturally have an implication in Management Education as well.

Key Words: Patented software, FOSS, IT in Management Education
