We prefer enterprise version for many reasons as against open source. Primarily because of support, stability, maturity of software and most importantly it is bug free.

We prefer Open source (in general) but it depends on the application/software/tool

As a software development agency you would think we lean to open source however in all honesty it’s all about fit for purpose. Enterprise and open source both have their benefits however I don’t believe this should be the final deciding factor in whether you choose or not.
