The art of computer programming is knowing when not to program. If someone else has invested the time and is willing to share their knowledge, it is in the best interest of everyone to not rewrite anything from scratch. Coding is not a time consuming process. Testing the code and making sure it fits the clients needs is what separates a good software company from a bad one.
We try and deal with Open Source code as much as possible. Very often a manufacturer's software application will limit any customization. Open Source code grants us complete control over any project. Choosing which Open Source software to use involves many factors:
Has the public had access to the code for a period of time?
Does it conform to current programming standards?
Is the code in a popular programming language?
Does the company have a popular online developer's forum for developers to share knowledge and get help if something goes wrong (which it always does)?
Do they have periodic updates to their product?
All these factors play into account which is why we try and stick to coding platforms that are popular by most developers.
