The Benefits

By becoming an OSC member, you are making a statement that you are committed to openness; that the software and solutions you offer are based on excellence and customer service rather than attempting to rely upon technical barriers and tricks to create dependencies. You are making a statement that you are confident in your business offer and business skills.
