A generation has now grown up with the internet and open source. They want to work with these systems and tools rather than the closed and proprietary approaches that are frequently seen as more limiting.
Developments in software and systems are prolific and it is only the open source community, with its millions of software architects, analysts, designers and programmers, that offers the rapid access required to both keep up and take advantage.
The combination of Open Source Software, Open Systems interoperability and open standards has created a self-reinforcing community of shared research and development and a pooling of creative ideas.
