Open source software is defined by its attached license which abandons essential rights granted to the original creator by copyright law. This procedure gives anyone the opportunity to redistribute and modify any received open source software. Most operating systems, drivers and utility programs are written by commercial organizations that distribute executable versions of their software versions that can’t be studied or altered. Open source requires the distribution of original source materials that can be studied, altered and built upon, with the results once again freely distributed.

The Open Source Definition is a bill of rights for the computer user. Its defines certain rights that a software license must grant you to be certified as Open Source. Those who don’t make their programs Open Source are finding it difficult to compete with those who do, as users gain a new appreciation of rights they always should have had. Programs like the Linux operating system and Netscape’s web browser have become extremely popular, displacing other software with more restrictive licenses. Companies that use Open Source software have the advantage of its very rapid development, often by several collaborating companies, and much of it contributed by individuals who simply need an improvement to serve their own needs.

Linux commonly pronounced IPA in English. Linux is a Unix-like computer operating system. Linux is a one of the typically all underlying source code can be freely modified, used and redistributed by anyone. The name ‘Linux’ comes from Linux kernel, originally written in 1991 by Linus Torvalds. The system’s utilities and libraries usually come from the GNU operating system, announced in 1983 by Richard Stallman. The GNU contribution is the basis for the alternative name GNU/Linux.

1.1: Hardware 4. and other future applications on single MPC platform. The objectives of the MPC Flagship Application are:  To provide the government and payment application. and  To enhance security and convenience of existing and new application delivered on the MPC platform MyKad was developed by the National Registration Department (JPN) and private ICT developers that create a common platform for smart card solutions. It has been a controversial application.1: Multipurpose Card The National Multipurpose Card seeks to develop a single and common platform for a Multipurpose Card (MPC) that will enable government and private application providers to implement smart card solutions without duplication of effort and investment.0: THE LATEST DEVELOPMENT IN ICT 4. the MPC is implemented through the GMPC and PMPC projects. As a result. The card is embedded with a security enhance 64K microprocessor chip that is multifunctional across varying systems. Initially. MyKad and Bankcard are the products developer for the GMPC and PMPC initiatives.  To provide enhance services to customers.4. given civil society concern about privacy and the lack of protection of private data under Malaysian law.

If you are on the road regularly.

2: WIRELESS Wireless is a term used to describe telecommunications in which electromagnetic waves (rather than some from of wire) carry the signal over part or the entire communication path. Like the other developing country.2. programming and application software.0: CONCLUSION Software that is not part of an operating system is application software. Malaysia gets the opportunity to be one of the countries that received the latest development of ICT. Communication and Technologies (ICT) and technologies in every developing country has bring the world through the development in ICT. ICT not only can give the information to human’s beings but also gives many benefits for us today and also for future generations. 5 . Software is divided into three categories which are operating system. Most modern software is written in Visual BASIC. employ acoustic waves at frequencies above the range of human hearing. Some monitoring devices. 6. It can be portrayed as computer programs that are used to accomplish specific tasks not related to the computer itself where they can be installed on your machine using disks or CDs. Delphi or database languages. these are also sometimes classified as wireless. The development in Information.5. Software can be acquired in two ways which the custom software and public software. such as intrusion alarms.
