Do you like to have open sourced forum software or Closed.
Heres the difference:
Open source is where you have the flexibility to customize it the way you want without the limitations of copyright or Closed sourced scripting
Pros: You have the freedom to customize it the way you want. But if you arent great at coding it will be a let down for you begininers.
Cons: You are more likely to have Security breaches (i.e. Back doors open.
Having alot of bugs to deal with.
Closed source / Perpriatary You have limitations on what you are able to edit if anything at all. Completly controlled by the Developer.
Still lost? Take Apple IOS vs Android ---> the interesting part is they both are running off the same base platform which is Linux.
Tell us what you think?
