"Open" is a way of describing something as being more accessible: more accessible to more people, more accessible on more devices, etc.

Examples

  • The Mac is "more open" than Linux because it is more open to more people being able to productively use it, as opposed to requiring users meet a bar of becoming a Linux sysadmin.
  • Slack is "more open" than Hipchat because of the well-designed mobile, web, and desktop apps, as well as the ease of integrating external sources.
