vendor neutral

vendor neutral

A product or specification that is not proprietary and controlled by one company. Open source software was conceived to avoid allegiance to a single vendor (see open source). However, an "open system" is not entirely vendor neutral as the foundation platform may be controlled by one company (see open system). Contrast with vendor lock-in.
