Abstract:
In this chapter we discuss issues related to the software, as a major guidance component for the Information Society. Particular emphasis is given to the presentation of open source. Specifically the chapter presents the following topics:

• Software Categories (system software, programming languages and application software)
• Software Engineering (software life cycle, software life cycle models)
• The software and its development models (proprietary software and Free Software / Open Source Software)
• Features and licensing models of FS / OSS
• Benefits (quality and reliability, hardware requirements, adaptability, open standards and interoperability, cost, security, transparency) and disadvantages of FS / OSS
• Applications of FS / OSS in PCs and servers
• Current situation use FS / OSS internationally and in Greece
• Good practices of FS / OSS in education and public administration
