I was wondering where the proper place for theoretical questions would be. E.g. (a little noobish, but whatever) I wondered how it's possible for something to be closed source - why can't you either look at the file or look at what the programme is making the computer do, and reverse engineer the code?

  • Software Engineering could be a possibility. As to reverse engineering, it is a very difficult endeavour. Look at how far Wine and ReactOS have got by reverse engineering. – muru Dec 4 '14 at 9:26
  • Thanks! that's very interesting. Also, in the future I'll look there for answers! – GuyfromAmsterdam Dec 4 '14 at 16:08
