Open Source

Open source software source codes are made available free of charge to the general public. The rationale for this is that a large community of developers who are not concerned with proprietary ownership will produce more useful and bug-free product for everyone's benefit.

Open Source technology makes business sense. Apart from being free and of very high quality, it is often more powerful than most commercially available products. This is because its shared development harnesses the benevolent brilliance of thousands around the world who are continually developing, improving, and evolving its core. It's a worldwide community, getting together to build something awesome, regardless of distance, language, and culture.
