Without question, the biggest advantage of free software is that it allows information to be exchanged between developers, users, and anyone else who has an interest. Users can see how their favorite applications work, developers can peer into the workings of other applications to improve their own code, and so on and so on. By opening up the source, and giving the individual the freedoms to utilize what they find there, free software invariably leads to a more vibrant community and more agile software.
