Open Source Software

Open Source software is something which we wholeheartedly embrace. The reasons we favour using Open Source is not just because you don’t have to pay for it (our rule of thumb is that to keep the community going it is the honourable thing to do, and as such making a small donation such as the value of a CD for a product you use every day in your work is not too much to ask), but because often open source software does exactly the task or job we want it to, is well documented, and excellent quality and by using it you “free” and are not confined to use other proprietary software and locked into the walled garden of software from a particular company. You are also “free” to modify the code and tailor open source software to your particular needs.

List of  Open Source Software we use

  • Apache – web server and tools
  • AWStats – web statistics based on log file analysis
  • Eclipse – Integrated Development Environment(IDE)
  • G.I.M.P. – Graphical Image Manipulation Program
  • JBoss/WildFly – Application Server
  • Linux – Operating System (Debian based distributions are my favoured ones, Ubuntu and Mint)
  • Open Office – Suite of Office products, Word processor, Spreadsheet, Presentations and Drawing (I use the LibreOffice fork of OO)
