Following the recent excitement surrounding the possible discovery of the Higgs boson a scientist working at CERN has written an interesting post on Reddit explaining the crucial role Linux – a free open-source operating system – played in the possible discovery.

This is a great reminder as to the power and versatility offered by open-source software and its philosophy of public collaboration; meaning that anyone can view and improve the software’s source-code.

It is not only in advancing the understanding of the universe that open-source software plays an important role but also in powering everyday items like Android phones, websites, desktop computers and even the trading platform at the London Stock Exchange.

You will also find similarly advanced and well developed open-source software here at Somerset Web Services, in our eCommerce and Content Management products.
