SUSE is an open source company. Open source is in our genes . Our products are all open source and our development mantra is “Open source first, upstream first”. This is because working in the open allows for a level of collaboration which is not possible with proprietary software. By being part of the community and contributing with many others within and outside of SUSE we broaden the base for our technology and business in a way which would not be possible with a more restricted development model.
