Open Source Business Solutions

Why choose open-source software for your business?

Well, deciding to invest time and money into open-source projects benefits both your business and our entire software ecosystem. We install free and open-source alternatives to commercial options to help business and organizations reduce software costs, while also promoting the habit of donating time or money to the projects your organization uses. Whether it's giving a few dollars to an operating system or simply even word-of-mouth – your participation and active use can make a huge difference in protecting innovation and collaboration in software.

If you want to save on your software and cloud overheads, and feel great about working with transparent and ethical software and infrastructure projects, then open-source is the way to go!
