1. (5 points) In the pursuit of profits, why would companies sell an open source product as opposed to a proprietary product? For example, Android is an open source software which any company can download and install on their products. Of course, every company that uses Android modifies it for their product, and this can be done because the product is open source. Apple, on the other hand, uses a software for all its products which will work only on Apple’s products (proprietary).
Why would a company choose open-source as opposed to the proprietary model (or vice –versa)? Does one model increase profits more than the other? Please give an explanation.
