Abstract

This paper examines the differences between free and commercial software, from the viewpoint of the final profit, through comparison of both types of software. The analysis has been performed through comparison of the differences in the software types, as well as the viewpoint of the feasibility of the technologies, regardless of whether they're free or not. Conceptual foundations of the open source and closed source software are given, as well as examples for such software and an overview of certain differences through a comparison of operating systems, and also an overview of the profit of companies that produce free software and companies that produce non-free software. The approach of choosing software based on personal experience is given. According to the arguments presented, as well as personal experiences, a conclusion is reached about which approach should be taken when starting with software creation, from the viewpoint of available resources, the technology that would be used, and the ultimate goal of the company that is producing the software.
