Open Source Software: Why pay? It's free!




Speakers: Dionisios Dimakopoulos , Mohammad Majid al-Rifaie, Evangelos Tsiontsis

The focus for the evening is on current cost cutting opportunities for alternative FREE software.

Further topics of the evening will cover the advantages of switching to open source software, from individual applications to operating systems, both for businesses and individuals. 

Solutions on how you can make a smooth transition from the software you are currently using to free and open source solutions that do not have onerous end user license agreements (EULAs) will be discussed. A taster presentation on how to use an open source document editor will bring the night to a close.
