In my non-work life, everything is open sourced, so it is a bazaar world, where I can get stuff ala carte. Mean, I can just pick and match any software, as long it is compatible. Which is really, most would work!!
Now in my work life, proprietary software is used, mostly. Fine, most of the mainframe software is established, by prorietary company. But the desktop software, also is license, like most software house in Malaysia. It would take me a number of days to get a particular software, simply because, we need a license.
Maybe I really need to get use to the "real world"
