| Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). FOSS 
| and the Internet have a symbiotic 
| relationship. The Internet would not have 
| been possible without FOSS. And the growth 
| of FOSS relies on the Internet to power 
| its peer production and distribution 
| model. Over 270 million people use the 
| Firefox browser, a shared, freely 
| available tool. Half of the worldâs Web 
| sites, about 112 million, run on Apache 
| Server, also open source. A quarter of a 
| million websites run on Drupal, a leading 
| open source content management system.
| Thatâs just scratching the surface: Today, 
| there are over 200,000 open source 
| projects with nearly 5 billion lines of 
| code that would cost an estimated $387 
| billion to reproduce. Check out the 
| Infoworldâs Open Source Hall of Fame for 
| more on desktop favorites, like Ubuntu, as 
| well as obscure but vital infrastructure 
| projects like BIND. You might also check 
| out the Open Source Census, which tracks 
| business installations of FOSS.
