    Usability and open-source software development
    Article exploring open source software usability.

  • Usability and open-source software development David M

  • Abstract Open-source is becoming an increasingly popular software development method

  • This paper reports a usability study of the open-source Greenstone Digital Library collection-building software

  • The problems highlighted by the study are analysed to identify their likely source within the social context of Greenstone’s development environment

  • We discuss how characteristics of open-source software development influence the usability of resulting software products

  • Introduction Open-source is becoming an increasingly popular software development method, producing successful software such as the Linux operating system and the Apache web server

  • Open-source software is popular with technically sophisticated users, who are often also the software developers, and has not yet made a significant impact on the desktop of most users

  • This paper starts to address this issue through a usability study of the open-source Greenstone Digital Library Software

  • The inter-disciplinary nature of Greenstone’s target users provide an interesting (and relatively rare) test case for the generality of open-source development methods

  • Most software is developed so that only the original authors can examine and change the code; with open-source models, however, anyone can do it if they have a computer and the right intuition

  • Since you've never seen the source code, it probably doesn't even occur to you that you could fix the problem at its root
