It is quite literally true to say that Open Source Desktop and Software Application Support is an Open Source success story. The original program was developed by the software company, who released the code to the Open Source community under the terms of the GNU GPL in March of 2001. Until August of 2005, the development of Open Source Desktop and Software Application Support was controlled by a loosely organized community of volunteers. During the course of development, Open Source Desktop and Software Application Support grew in complexity and ability and won a number of awards together with a wide following of loyal users.
