100% open source driven company
One of the worlds first really 100% open source driven companies went online in 2011. The electronic component and measuring company built by students of electronics and informatics runs fully on GNU-GPL licensed, open source systems. The team of develissimo contributes to different kinds of projects from electronics up to informatics. Projects such as Linux, Ubuntu, Apache, Django, Python, PostgreSQL, Nginx, Subversion, KiCad, MSPDebug, the list is long... This is not just because of the technical advantages of open source technology over others and/or financial cost savings. It is a way of life and an important decision which has to be done, because open vs closed source will affect all our social life in the future. It already does! So hopefully their will be a lot more 100% pure open source companies in the future which fight for technical standards, security, improve reliability of data systems, protect private data and keep an eye on our human rights now and in the near future.
