Power of opensource

For those who may still be wondering what opensource is all about, here is an interesting piece on the power of opensource in the context of Obama’s election win. Since I use opensource for both work and at home

  • OS = Linux (Debian and Ubuntu)
  • Web browser = Chrome, Firefox/Iceweasel
  • Email = Thunderbird/Icedove and (well, this is not quite opensource 🙂 ) GMail
  • Office = OpenOffice
  • Image processing = GIMP
  • Database = MySql
  • CMS = WordPress

I can certainly appreciate first-hand the versatility and comprehensiveness of opensource softwares.

If you have not done so, why not dip your hand and try something new today?
