We believe in the positive effect of open source.
Open Source Code
Open source code has many often mentioned advantages. Several eyes can examine the source code. Bugs can be found by independent reviewers faster. Fixing those bugs is not only the competence of a few, who control the code. Back doors can be avoided.
Open source corresponds to the principles of evolution, just like nature shows us every day and has us shown forever. With small modifications the better concept will evolve in flora and fauna. Variations in the natural wildlife – not the multinational enterprise driven monocropping – strengthen the resistance to a wold wide pest infestation.
Just like this open source tries new ideas for existing solutions by variations. Open source tests new concepts so that the better – or sometimes both – can persist. A variety in the opensource landscape with different operating systems, different mail clients or different server applications is in the same way more resistant to a world wide “pest infestation”.
With opensource you, the customer, is not bound to a single vendor. Using open data formats you have the possibility to switch from one opensource product to another. And for the opensource products you can find the consultants and service provider who suits you the best.
Open code can motivate the developer to write better code. Just like an artist who knows and cherishes that his artwork will be displayed in public and inspected by everybody in detail.
