The Future Of Open-Source Enterprise Linux And Community Collaboration


"Open-source software's security and reliability aspects have played a significant role in its rise. The availability of source code to a large community of developers allows for thorough code review, which helps promptly identify and address potential security vulnerabilities. With a collective effort to maintain and enhance the software, the open-source approach ensures higher reliability and stability."

Open Saucers Have Job Security


While tech companies are laying off staff claiming that they are cutting costs because of “economic headwinds” they do not seem that keen to let their open saucers go.
