Scottish Open Source Centre

Adam Smith College (Fife, Scotland) launched the official opening of their Scottish Open Source Centre 22/Feb/2007, which formally introduced Open Source technology, products and concepts at the GlenCo Development Solutions division of the College. The event was part funded by an Equal European project set up to raise awareness of Open Source alternatives to Small Businesses and other users.

At the centre they install and demonstrate the use of a very credible alternative to Microsoft software. The centre is all about the use of Open Source and the various packages that are there so that small business’s and even larger business’s don’t have to pay out large sums of money to have a secure and fully functioning network. The desktop and server machines have been running a distribution of Linux and the use of Open Office for the main office tools has led to a complete and functioning network a business can use.
