IT Life: Open Source Is Open For Business

Reconnix, formerly ForLinux, is an open source technology solutions provider. The company was founded by Steve Nice, its current CTO, and his wife in 2001, with the aim of promoting open source software for business.

Prior to Reconnix, Nice worked as a computer operator on ICL Mainframes at a local engineering company, before progressing into more technical, support-focused roles. His areas of expertise include applications, networking, cloud and retro computers. He is also a certified ‘ethical hacker’.

Below, we talk to Nice about the future of open source, mobile security and the impact that Sinclair ZX81 has had on his life.
