The open-source movement gave us many of the software such as operating systems, browsers and databases. They hold a prominent place in the world that we are living in today. The internal projects of large companies such as Kubernetes, React, Angular and Tensorflow that was later open-sourced have become industry standards, adding to the momentum of the OSS movement. Traditionally the OSS companies used to make money by selling support and services. This free software and paid support approach were adopted by many companies including pioneers like Redhat and MySQL. Now the open-source software (OSS) has started eating into the SaaS space. Many OSS projects now have a hosted solution.
