Why Open Source?
Free and Open Source technologies are essential tools
for the vast majority of internet users everywhere in the world.
Whether we consider Web Servers running on Linux, the Web Server Software (Apache), or the millions of installations of PHP, Perl, Python, MySQL, and PostgreSQL - or even the user's web browsers such as Mozilla's Firefox - Open Source tools dominate the internet.
Open Source applications tend to be standards compliant - which cannot be said for many leading proprietary tools.
We prefer Open Source tools because they are often more robust, stable, and secure. And they are available without licensing fees.
