Since being established in March 1997, we have been in the business of providing support services for small to medium businesses, and home customers for over 20 years.

Alot has changed in that time. When we first started, DOS v6, Windows 3.1, and the newbie Windows 95 was everywhere. PC Systems found in the work place were 386, 486 and slowly being replaced by Pentium based systems.
The typical specification of the first computer systems that we built for end users were based on Pentium 100Mhz CPU, 8/16MB of Ram, 1GB hard disc and floppy discs, installed with Microsoft Windows 95 - very slow by today's standards.

Linux was just taking off in the server world with v2.0, with companies like IBM starting to support it, many administrators in the web hosting industry grasping the benefit of an opensource operating system to deploy their services.

Roll on 20 plus years, we have seen and supported many distributions of Microsoft Windows come and go, PC and server hardware has moved on enormously with the implementation of SATA, PCIE, USB1-USB3.1 replacing the older ISA and PCI, the hardware now supports greater bandwidth, and so able to move data in the multi Gbps range instead of a few Mbps, opening even greater advances in technology.
As technology has moved on so has the manufacturing industry, Mini PCs and smart devices with SOC multi-core processors are faster than the old computers and they are small enough they fit in your hand.

The internet has also changed from being nearly unheard of, with only a few homes and businesses having access on a dial-up modem, to us all being connected in multiple ways - broadband, wifi and 3G/4G on mobile devices. We now depend more than ever on access to web based services for almost every part of our daily work and social life.

Amongst all the changes, Linux has also become a dominating force from web/database/file servers in datacentres and onsite installation, engineering systems, routers, televisions, set-top boxes, fridges, to mobile devices through Android, and soon hopefully the home desktop. What an impact Linux has had on everyone's daily life that most people do not notice or understand.

We moved all our in-house systems, development and production servers to Linux in 2006, as most of our development was on and for Linux, we have not looked back. As time went on we joined like minded individuals and started contributing to open source projects, with the aim of driving the opensource software further forward with each contribution.
