Open-source is defined as software that can be fully modified and redistributed without any restrictions. Examples of such software include Firefox (browser), Android, and Linux.

"Better" or "Superior" is defined as having the most qualities which appeal to most users.

First round is acceptance only! Con must argue that proprietary software is better than open-source software. Begin!

i dont know what either of them are, but i will tell you that computers are cool. software is overated and we should use sillyware. in sillyware we can use lasers to shoot at those dreaded museums. the silly ware also can use permanent markers. technology is cool. though i have none. i am sad because i cannot afford a computer. everyday, i have to go to the public library and use the public computers. sad days, sad days indeed.
