What does "open source" mean?

A couple of weeks ago, we released elementary OS Luna, the latest version of our design-driven and open source operating system. In that time, we’ve served 200,000 downloads. Interestingly, about half of those have been to Windows users; a statistic uncommon for open source operating systems. Seeing as how half of our new user base is coming from a closed source operating system, we thought we’d give a brief overview of what “open source” really means and why we believe in it.
