Telecom Reseller

Open source enables government business continuity
FutureGov
It is not unknown to hear about closed-source software companies that end technical support and security patches for their products. It is a technique that some of them use to force their customers to upgrade to a newer version. In addition, some unfortunate circumstances may force the companies to go out of business and in the process they abort their products as well.
