How and why contributing to FOSS can benefit your organization

,----[ Quote ]
| At first glance, the ecosystem in the Free 
| and Open Source Software (FOSS) world can 
| seem a bit complicated. There are several 
| ways to get software: project websites 
| where you can download it directly, use a 
| software management tool that your Linux 
| distribution provides, or you may also be 
| able to install a Linux distribution that 
| includes everything you need right out of 
| the box! Once you understand this 
| ecosystem, you can find where your 
| contributions would be most useful, and why 
| contributing is beneficial to your 
| organization and the FOSS community.
