Open Source?

Undoubtedly, you have been hearing and reading a lot about open source. You probably also have a lot of questions, such as: What is it? How can it help me? Is it really as good as commercial software?

Open Source is a generic term used to describe many things to many people. Open Source is not a single program, nor a single operating system. It is a philosophy and a method used to improve software by peer review. The code is licensed under various schemes, all of which provide full access to the source code, along with the means to compile it in most cases.

Open Source software is normally as good and in most cases better than most commercial packages. Software such as the Apache webserver, Sendmail and Postfix mail systems, as well as the FreeBSD operating system are excellent examples.

As with any technology, experience in configuring, customizing, and optimizing is valued over cheap prices. Open Source Wizards has that experience. We’re here to take a look at your goals and problems and offer solutions.
