Systems based on open-source technologies are proving to be an interesting and very common phenomenon in the area of modern software design. In this context we introduce our Web information system from an unorthodox viewpoint - open-source. We try to give a lucid overview how open-source paradigm can be effectively incorporated and utilised in software design. In addition, we also speak of the benefits of this principle, especially in the context of distributed knowledge sharing and rapid software development. As an outstanding and extremely successful products of open-source paradigm we expose the Linux and FreeBSD operating systems as well as some other renowned projects which have now gained much popularity, particularly because of the ability to contribute to them.
