Steeds IT embraces and supports the use of Open Source Software. Open Source software is software that is licensed under The GPL license and is free to use. It is full featured and updated regularly. An example of open source software is the Linux operating system that pretty much runs everything on the internet today. Open source software can save a business thousands of dollars. If we can find an open source alternative to one that needs to be purchased and it will do the same job we will use it.
