Introduction
Open source according to Open Source Intiative is defined as open source refers to any program whose source code is made available for use or modification as users or other developers see fit. (Historically, the makers of proprietary software have generally not madesource code available.) Open source software is usually developed as a public collaborationand made freely available.
Latest Open Source System (OS)
The meaning of open source operating system can be defined as a operating system which isnot proprietary or in other words free,can be modify willingly and follows other criteria statedabove.On the web, they are many open source operating systems avalable for download.For an example, take the popularly rising Ubuntu.Ubuntu is sponsored by Canonical Ltd, which isowned by South African entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth. Instead of selling Ubuntu itself,Canonical makes money by selling paid support for Ubuntu. By keeping Ubuntu free andopen Canonical is able to leverage the talents of outside developers willing to contributerather than having to do all development within the company itself.Furthermore, Ubuntuitself, will a release a new version of the OS every six moth making it the most up-to-datesoftware realase by the company, and for that, it is becoming popular by the minute.Another great example of an open sorce operating system is the Knoppix.Knoppix originates from thefamous family of Linux.Knoppix had been known for it’s special ability to run on LiveCD(the first OS) which means a user can run the OS without even installing it on theharddrive.Furthermore, this OS has a very regular update which is in 2 to 3 month per release.

The Latest Open Source Software Application
Open source software is very popular nowadays, as it is an alternative for user with a low budget.Open source software is defined as a software which can be downloadedfreely,modify, and redistributable.A famous open source software is The Gimp.The Gimp is a
 
 photo editing utility.The gimp has caught attentions of users all over the world as the file doesnot take a lot of space contrary to other proprietary software such as Adobe Photoshop.Moreover, it is good for those who doesn’t want to get a headache using a picture editingsoftware.Another example of an open source software is Audacity.Audacity is an audioediting software.It supports most of audio format avalble today.It was made popular when itwas featured in the Ubuntu.Audacity has proven a favourite open source software when it has been choosen a winner in the SourceForge.net 2007 Community Choice Award for BestProject for Multimedia.

Latest Development in ICT
Day by day, there is always a development in the ICT field.Hardware is the most fastestevolving subject in ICT.For an example, take the the Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX+.Thisgraphic card supports the Nvidia hybridpower, in other words in is enviromentally friendly.Itis twice as much better than it’s predecessor the GeForce 8400 GS Incomparrison, the 9800GTX+ can support up to 512mb of VRAM.While the GeForce 8400 GS supports only 256MBof VRAM.Softwares are also not left out from the fast growing industry.Take Mozilla Firefox3.0.3 realeased on

for an example.It has a special feature which is a builtin anti-malware feature.Compare to the previous version, the anti-malware in it was not a total protection in which the new version offers.

Pervasive Computing
These days, pervasive computing is developing widely and rapidly by the hour.Pervasivecomputing means the trend towards increasingly ubiquitous (another name for the movementis
ubiquitous computing 
), connected computing devices in the environment, a trend being brought about by a convergence of advanced electronic - and particularly, wireless -technologies and the Internet. this type of technology doesn’t require human interaction andthat all pervasive computing devices can communicate with each other independently.The definitions only differ from each other by interpreting the term Pervasive Computing indifferent ways. Pervasive Computing is generally agreed to be heavily in connection withubiquitous computing, as all of the terms seem to trend toward one another. The above imageexplains a bit about pervasive computing by showing that a Human can keep track of personalthings and information while ‘out and about’. The reason this is possible is because all theinformation tends to be embedded into many devices which interact with each other.Examples of these pervasive computing are sensors.New sensors can detect change inenviroment and human acts.Another example of it is is database management.For an example,in the States, they have adopted this technology in which millions of medical record aredigitalize and can be acces by hospitals around the country without having to search andwaiting for in the information to get pass several states.
