In this episode of the Podcast, we talk about the open-source movement and how it relates to Adapt. Open-source is a term that encapsulates licences that allow users to freely use, change and distribute the changes. Adapt uses the GPLv3 licence which grants these freedoms.

Chuck and Simon discuss the pros and cons of open-source software versus proprietary software. They discuss the rationale behind open-source and some of the limitations of open-source licences.
