Open Source on the Desktop

Are you less than happy with your current desktop system? Did it cost you a small fortune? Does it impose strict licensing conditions? Is there a free upgrade path? Does your system crash frequently? Does it fail to interact with other systems? Is it full of bugs? Do you need to add more RAM every time you install another package? Is it prone to viruses, worms and trojans?

Linux is more than ready for the desktop, as evidenced by the many blue chip companies who are cutting costs and improving user experience and productivity by replacing their stock, proprietary operating systems with Linux across the enterprise. Openstrike is one business which uses GNU/Linux exclusively on its PCs because we recognise that stability, security, efficiency, flexibility and ease of management are better than a talking paperclip.

Openstrike can provide advice and resources to assist in choosing a distribution, using thick or thin clients, distributed filesystems and grid computing, cloud integration, drop-in replacements for your existing user applications and much, much more.


In business, security is paramount. Your reputation lies in your ability to keep your customers private details secret. Millions of businesses across the globe are putting this reputation in jeopardy by relying on error-prone, insecure and unreliable systems to manage this data. Now is the time to act - before it's too late.

Respected studies have shown that the market-leading proprietary operating system is compromised in minutes, not days or weeks. Who would trust such a system with their valuable data? Not Openstrike and not one of our clients. We offer the security and reliability of a range of open source systems so that you can have peace of mind and your reputation can remain intact.
