Team SFD.PH: "FOSS is for everyone. Grab it, use and benefit from it!"

This Sunday is full of sharing and Free and Open Source Software. Team SFD.PH also guested on DZIQ "Isyu ng bayan" hosted by Mr. Ricky Brosas and Ms.Liza Soriano.

Benefits of Free and Open Software to our kababayan was the main focus of the discussion. Team SFD.PH led by Mr. Meric Mara shared not only the cost savings but also pointed that SME/s & Business Owners can "Try before they buy the software". There are lots of QUALITY software that can now be downloaded on the internet and everyone has the freedom to choose the software that best fits their needs. 

Mr. Macoy Mejia and Mr. Jerico James Milo, both open source advocates, shared other benefits like security,customization and localization that can ONLY be possible on F/OSS.
