Inforworld have been looking at the many thousands of open source projects that exist to find out which ten are the most important ones in the world.
The Open Source Hall of Famers is created in connection with Inforworld's annual designation of the best open source applications for business, published on Monday.
In first place we find Linux, which has been one of the greatest drivers in the promotion of open source. Linux is followed by the GNU tools and compilers in second place.
In the remaining seats you will find projects such as BIND, Apache, Samba, and the three BSD releases. Follow the link to read a detailed explanation of each project location, or see an overview here.
