At Comm-Tech we believe that everyone should have access to high quality, updated and useful software, regardless of Country of Origin, Financial situation or Political beliefs. For this reason we do not supply or promote the use of software with licences that violate these principles.
Just a few years back, software was very expensive, so only those who could afford were able to use it legally. This all changed very radically with the growth of the Open Source (GNU) movement. Now there is a motivated network of hundreds of thousands of programmers and contributors around the world collaborating to design, build and maintain high quality software such Firefox, Open Office, Linux, Audacity and much more. All this software is FREE to use, for profit or otherwise. The Open Source business model has been proven to work, and your seriously missing out if you choose to ignore it.
Much Open Source Software (OSS) is made available cross-platform, which means it can be used on Windows, Linux or Mac.
We have included OSS applications with your computer, tools that empower you to really use the computer. Many of them have many tens thousands of hours of work put into them by professional programmers and designers.
