Slashdot links to a BusinessWeek article that introduces open source and reports on companies using open source to save money. Some popular software they list as cost-conscious include Linux (operating system), Apache (server), MySQL (relational database), Firefox (web browser), Xen (virtualization), Pentaho (business intelligence), OpenOffice.org (full office suite), Drupal (content management system), Alfresco (content management system), SugarCRM (customer relationship management), and Asterisk (telephone switch/PBX).
Hi! I’m Chris, I run cities and counties (city management) by day and dabble in web development by night. And raise three kids.
This is my personal website, where I talk a little about government, a little about web design, and whatever else I find interesting. If you would like to contact me, I'm available here.
My short form writing is available on my Micro.blog.
