1.0 Introduction
Open source software (OSS) is defined as computer software for which the
source code and certain other rights normally reserved for copyright holders are
provided under a software license that meets the Open Source Definition or that is in
the public domain. This permits users to use, change, and improve the software, and
to redistribute it in modified or unmodified forms.
Hardware is the physical aspect of computers, telecommunications, and other devices. The term arose as a way
to distinguish the "box" and the electronic circuitry and components of a computer from the program you put in
it to make it do things. The program came to be known as the software.
Software is any set of machine-readable instructions that directs a computer's processor to perform specific
operations. Computer software contrasts with computer hardware, which is the physical component of
computers. Computer hardware and software require each other and neither can be realistically used without the
other. Using a musical analogy, hardware is like a musical instrument and software is like the notes played on
that instrument.

2.0 The Latest Open Source Operating System (OS)

2.1 Meaning of open source OS
Open Source Operating System is the most important program that runs ona computer that is free to use, change,
and improve the software, and to redistribute itin modified or unmodified forms. Every general-purpose
computer must have anoperating system to run other programs. Operating systems perform basic tasks, suchas
recognizing input from the keyboard, sending output to the display screen, keepingtrack of files and directories
on the disk, and controlling peripheral devices suchas disk drives and printers.

2.2 Examples of open source OS

Haiku is an open-source operating system currently in development designed from the ground up for desktop
computing. Inspired by the BeOS, Haiku aims to provide users of all levels with a personal computing
experience that is simple yet powerful, and free of any unnecessary complexities. Haiku is developed mostly by
volunteers around the world in their spare time.

Linux Mint is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and Debian, with an alternative Linux Mint Debian Edition
(LMDE) based purely on Debian. Mint provides full out-of-the-box multimedia support by including some
proprietary software such as Adobe Flash.

3.0 The latest Open source Application Software

3.1 Meaning of open source Application Software
Open source application software is computer software that is available in source code form for which the
source code and certain other rights normally reserved for copyright holders are provided under a software
license that permits users to study, change, and improve the software. Open source licenses often meet the
requirements of the Open Source Definition. Some open source application software is available within the
public domain. Open source application software is very often developed in a public, collaborative manner.
Open source application software is the most prominent example of open source development and often
compared to user-generated content or open content movements. The term open source application software
originated as part of a marketing campaign for free application software.

3.2 Examples of open source application software

A web browser is a software application for retrieving, presenting, and traversing information resources on the
World Wide Web. An information resourceis identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and may be a
web page, image, video, or other piece of content. Hyperlinks present in resources enable users easily to
navigate their browsers to related resources. The major web browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox,
Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and Opera.
An office application set (for word processing, spreadsheet manipulation, picture drawing and data base access)
compatible with all other major officeapplication sets such as Office and available for Windows and Mac as well
as Linuxand other UNIX systems.

5.0 Pervasive computing

5.1 Meaning of pervasive computing


Adobe Photoshop CS6



Pervasive computing means that the technology is gracefully integrated in our everyday life. The user is no
longer aware of this embedded technology. It also refers to computers contained in common place objects such
as cars and etc. It appliances and implies that people are unaware of their presence. Pervasive computing uses
web technology, portable devices, mobile devices, wireless communications and nomadic or ubiquitos
computing system. Other terms for pervasive computing are Ubiquitous Computing, Calm Technology and
Thing That Think. It is about the ability to deliver any information to any device over any network. In short, it is
about computers everywhere, where computers are embedded into equipment, machines, furniture or people.
The current technology has evolved into embedded network and wireless.

5.2 Example of pervasive computing

A smart TV, sometimes referred to as connected TV or hybrid TV, is a television set or set-top box with integrated
Internet and Web 2.0 features, and is an example of technological convergence between computers and television
sets and set-top boxes. Besides the traditional functions of television sets and set-top boxes provided through
traditional broadcasting media, these devices can also provide Internet TV, online interactive media, over-the-top
content, as well as on-demand streaming media, and home networking access.

A smartphone (or smart phone) is a mobile phone with an advanced mobile operating system. They typically
combine the features of a cell phone with those of other popular mobile devices, such as personal digital
assistant (PDA), media player and GPS navigation unit. Most smartphones have a touchscreen user interface,
can run third-party apps and are camera phones. Most Smartphones produced from 2012 onwards also have
high-speed mobile broadband 4G LTE internet, motion sensors, and mobile payment mechanisms.

6.0 Conclusion
Open Source can be used by anyone and because it has no copyright claims, so users are free to use, change, and
improve the software, and to redistribute it in modified or unmodified forms. Pervasive Computing is to make
our lives easier because we can interact with computers. Besides that, we can easily give the computer
commands and the computer will grant your wish.
