Supporting the Open Source Revolution

The Open Source software[1] revolution is remodeling the computing world!

  • No longer are users tied to software that does not fit them like a glove. With the source code at their hands any Open Source software can be tailored to its users' exact demands. Bugs can be fixed immediately and locally, whereas with commercial software the user has no option other than to wait for the vendor to release a fix.

  • Open Source software unleashes the full power of modern hardware. Applications like ATLAS, PVM, Perl, mySQL, and GNU/Linux are a good examples.

  • Gone are the times of outrageous license costs, as Open Source software is distributed for the price of its distribution media; moreover there usually are no license contracts.

So everything is peaches and green? - Well, almost.

  • What is if you want support - comprehensive, reliable, and reachable support?

  • What if you want your favorite Open Source software package to be modified or extended, but you do not want to make the modifications yourself?

  • What if you want to learn more of how to exploit your Open Source Matlab®[2]-clone?

  • Scilab - huge, powerful, integrated.
