Computer Education Techniques aggregates and analyzes trial and open source package software in the public domain.

There is a challenge to address those areas of information technology where there is a scarcity of industry standard textbooks: 1- Update and extend textbooks with source software documentation into industry- and client- specific training resources. 2- Develop documentation for open source software. 3- Identify emerging use of hybrid commercial and open source commercial software.

A long term strategy is to develop a framework for an independent rating system for the textbooks, subscription magazines, and white papers associated with the leading open source licenses: Apache License 2.0/Apache 1.1, MIT License, BSD3-clause new or Revised License/BSD-2 clause simplified, Common Development and Distribution License 1.0, Eclipse Public License 1.0, GNU General Public Licenses v3.0/v2.0, GNU General Lesser Public License 2.1, Ms-PL: Microsoft Public License, and Mozilla Public License 1.1.

The migration of software workloads to the cloud has changed the open source software industry. Public clouds currently dominate the space and some leading vendor treat open source communities and businesses as free research and development for their own proprietary services. Although there are differences in opinion regarding the adherence to the principles of open source software, it is clear that open source software is in danger of being taken over by companies that do not share the values of the communities in when they participate in.1 The Common Clause initiative adds restrictions that limit or prevent the selling of open source software. However, this license has not been widely accepted from the open source community. The SSPL: Server Side Public License is a software license designed to protect open source software against expensive litigation and other issues relating to monetizing code ip: intellectual property. SSPL is being reviewed and evaluated to become an Open Source Initiative-approved license.

According to the 2018 Black Duck by Synopsys Open Source Security and Risk Analysis, 96 percent of the 1,100 commercial applications that the company audited for the survey contained open source components.  An application contained on average of 257 open source components with 57 percent of an applications’ code being open source. 2
