4 Real Sysadmin Work

Use open source software in preference to proprietary or closed source alternatives, in particular for operating systems, networking software, Web servers, databases and programming languages.

Problems which are rare, or specific to a domain may be best answered by using software as a service, or by installing proprietary software. In such cases, take care to mitigate the risk of lock-in to a single supplier by ensuring open standards are available for interfaces.

For unique needs and common problems which have yet to be solved well elsewhere, develop software by coding in the open and publish under an open source licence.
