Open Source software can be freely used, changed and shared by anyone.
Because of this philosophy, these software projects can be made and maintained by many people.
At Open-Future, we believe this mindset guarantees the continuity of software more than it’s closed source competitors.
It gives us the freedom to take an existing project and make changes to fit the needs of our customers, as well as give back to the community whenever we can.
An important Open Source project is Linux, an operating system that had over 10 000 people contributing code since it’s first release in 1991 by Linus Torvalds.
It is used in a lot of free distributions like Fedora, Debian and Ubuntu, but also in commercial projects like Red Hat Linux, Suse Enterprise Linux and others.
Open-Future’s employees have a big affinity with these operating systems and have used, integrated and modified these as needed to provide a smooth implementation for customers.
