Why Software Freedom?

Why Not?

Software Freedom – Open Source & Open Standards are important, now more than ever. Software is used in every part of our lives it is no longer just something that should be consumed by everyone and hidden out of site.

I still find it incredible that so many people still have problems with malware, computer security and have never heard of linux or open source. To many in the “IT” industry have kept quiet about the credible alternatives to closed solutions.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership, increased reliability & security – this is all achievable. This is done by displacing revenue currently made by closed source software.
