Open Source Solutions
Most of Businesses in Sri Lanka tend to use Windows or other Software systems which should be licensed without licensing them. this is an illegal action that can decrease your business reputation if caught. Your customers will not trust your solutions anymore. There are many reasons why you should not use any premium software without licensing, and one of them is , if that system crashes while you do some business process using it, it will also crash the work you were doing using that unlicensed application.
There are two ways you can resolve this issue. one is of course purchasing licenses for the application, but since those licenses are more expensive, your profit may also reduced due to purchasing licenses. And the other solution is to use "Linux Systems".
