Open Source

The rationale driving Open Source software is that a broader group of programmers will ultimately produce a better product, with developers from around the world distributing their results to others.

Open Source is thus a philosophy for developing, releasing, and evolving quality software; software that competes equally, and often better, with some of the industry's biggest vendors.

Furthermore, due to open license agreements, Open Source software can be freely modified and redistributed with few restrictions. Consequently, Open Source software can be modified to suit your specific needs.
