What open source can do for:

OpenSource For You - - For U & Me -

An or­gan­i­sa­tion

Free and open source soft­ware (FOSS) is a wild dragon-child that can transform any or­gan­i­sa­tion into a Daen­erys Tar­garyen. But like her, you need to know how to tame this dragon, and where and when to use this ef­fec­tively. Oth­er­wise, its fire can and will con­sume you in­stead.

An in­di­vid­ual (home user)

What­ever soft­ware a home user adopts (in­clud­ing pro­pri­etary and com­mer­cial soft­ware), open source of­fers fierce com­pe­ti­tion to push costs down, keep it free, en­hance its per­for­mance, make it se­cure, or honour your pri­vacy bet­ter. Hence, open source browsers are free. Home users get op­er­at­ing sys­tems for free or a to­ken fee. The lat­est Fire­fox out­classes even Google Chrome, while Telegram mes­sen­ger and Sig­nal out­shine What­sApp with their pri­vacy and se­cu­rity.

Techie home user

That’s like singing to the choir. For the techie home user, open source is the best way to tinker and hack and, hope­fully, also build the next bil­lion-dol­lar uni­corn in your barsaati.
