Why we love Open Source Software

 

The Artonezero team have been working with Linux and Open Source software for over 10 years.  We use it to run our business and we recommend it to our clients.

We would be delighted to help you develop and introduce your open source strategy.  In the past, we have worked for firms such as Psion and Panasonic to develop Open Source offerings. 

The most recent Open Source software that we have taken to in a big way is Joomla!, which we liked so much we wrote a book about it.

These days the only commercial software package we run is Windows XP. Oh, and Nitro PDF (sorry Adobe).

Artonezero acquires Venus Business Systems web business

London, 14th June 2012: Artonezero is pleased to announce that it has acquired the web business of Venus Business Systems, comprising the website design service and web hosting facilities.  Rob Cooper, senior web developer at Venus is becoming a director of Artonezero and will work with us to ensure a smooth transition for Venus clients.

Mike Lloyd, MD of Artonezero said, "In the short term most Venus clients will probably be unaware of the changes on a day to day basis, but we hope in the longer term the service to our web clients will be significantly enhanced. One immediate benefit will be access to a more modern web/domain hosting platform and the option of control panel access for domains if required."

Justin Keery, MD of Venus said, "Because of our focus on providing high-speed fibre Internet services, which is what we are all about these days, we have arranged for a quality organisation with a long history of working with Venus to take over our domain and website hosting services. We have known the managing director Mike Lloyd for over 10 years, ... you will be in good hands."
