Software will be one of your key investments when you're starting a business - get it right, and it'll make your life much easier, but get it wrong and you'll be left with a very expensive mistake on your hands.
How do I know the open source software I want to
download is reliable?
When you're downloading software, look for projects which have had frequent updates and have formed a community around them. A project which hasn't been updated for the last six months probably won't be very reliable. If you're in doubt, consult an IT specialist.
