Simbiosi.org is a project with the aim of founding an internet based, freedom based and community managed company.
We strongly believe in the bazaar model, we think that an IT company can be more efficient not having a complex hierarchy and unuseful bureocracy.
Big companies move slowly, react too late and destroy the market buying, or absorbing the small ones.
Simbiosi.org cannot be bought because it is made of people and because it is not a common company
Potential customer can be quite, because Simbiosi.org does not cost more then people cost and they are free, because our solutions are based on Free Open Source Software.
What are the advantages?
Money of licenses can be used to improve quality and support
We don't have a huge and expensive structure, so we cost less
We are, because we don't need to change job
As we follow a FOSS model on everything you are safe and free without loosing knowledge and control on what happens
We are not a company so our goal is to work well and not to make profit
FOSS and what are the four freedoms
Free and open-source software (F/OSS, FOSS) or free/libre/open-source software (FLOSS, FL/OSS) is liberally licensed to grant the right of users to use, study, change, and improve its design through the availability of its source code. This approach has gained both momentum and acceptance as the potential benefits have been increasingly recognized by both individuals and corporations
The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0).
The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).
The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others (freedom 3). By doing this you can give the whole community a chance to benefit from your changes. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
