Open Source - Born to be Best

A revolutionary idea conquers the world. Open source is a philosophy that can provide more for all of us. Open source products are freely available for everybody and their source code is publicly available, according to the license used.

Companies and developers which follow the open source paradigm, invite you to participate in their enthusiasm and research, to improve products and benefit from the advantages. Open source products are usually developed and tested by a large community around the globe. This common endeavor provides a faster and more efficient response to problems and new challenges.

Using open source products gives rise to various different advantages:
use stable, fully developed and secure products, which are available for a small price or even for free. Place your sensitive data in the hands of products which have been developed by a worldwide community of professionals and tested by advanced users and amateurs. And if any error is revealed, the chance is very high, that you get a corrected version quickly and for free. Perhaps even you correct the error and give it back to the community. That would be the ultimate open source approach.

Open source products are available in a wide field of applications: from desktop operating systems to server-based solutions, from professional developer tools to games; you see, a whole range of demands and requirements can be satisfied.
