You mean I can get FREE software?
Open Source software is FREE. Because of this, the developers don't have the huge advertising budgets to spread the word about their programs. You need someone that stays on top of all the free software offerings. All you have to do is reap the benefits. Open Source used to mean you had to have a full-time Linux guru on staff to source, install, configure and maintain the software. Sure the software was free, but the labour costs were the same as paying for retail software. Our consultants can advise you on what works, what doesn't, and when it's best to stick with paid software.
The open source community thrives on sponsorship. If you find that an Open Source solution has helped you out, it is always nice to sponsor the development by sending funds to show your appreciation. Most developers have a sponsor link on their websites.

FREE website content-management-systems (CMS)
Website development has come a long way since the days of pricey proprietary software. Today, the best sites for business are being built using open-source content management systems (CMS) — such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal —that will save you thousands of dollars today and in the future.
These database-driven platforms are ideal for small business. The programs have literally thousands of plug-ins available to support every function, widget and web tool imaginable. Our web team can customize the features according to the website plan to suit your digital needs.
After that, you don't need to be a programmer or designer to maintain your site. The easy-to-use interface has built-in functionality that lets you update content, replace and resize pictures and add new features and functions on the fly. In fact, computer geeks around the world are constantly enhancing the functionality of open-source CMS platforms with innovative apps and widgets.
Once your site is live, you'll only need to contact eProsper™ for high-level tasks. Editing content and images becomes a do-it-yourself task, just like using a word processor.
