If you release a software, it must be clear for the user what he is allowed to do with it. Licenses are important to clearify that.
There are several common Licenses for Open Source Software like Public Domain, GNU GPL, LGPL, MIT, BSD, Creative Commons, Apache, Mozilla, ...
Many of them can be found here: http://opensource.org/licenses
or with the help of Google
Open Source means, that your code is available open (not compiled), visible in plain text. Official XAMPP tools are Open Source, their sources can be found in the \xampp\src\
folder and their licenses in \xampp\licenses\
