Open-source software (OSS) is the foundation for most development work today. There’s a rich ecosystem of OSS technologies that provides solutions for just about any layer of software that a given organization might want or need—for virtually any platform or architecture. And while OSS is widely used by both IT and development professionals, not all OSS is created equal.
