I’m a big fan of Open source software. I think the fact that there are products out there that allow people to use, share and modify them as they like is brilliant. There are several reasons to use open source software. Chief of which, for me, is that the software is not tied to any […]

Ten Cover Songs That Are (Arguably) Better Than The Original
