It's my first post here so. I want to say sorry if my english isn't really understandable. I'm from switzerland and my native language is swiss german but also have some problems with normal german .
I want to thank the Linux Mint developers for Mint, because i think it's awesome.
Now for the topic.
My question is, is there any open source alternate to a ecosystem like Apple and Facbook have and Amazon, Google and Microsoft try to build? I have looked a little bit around, well not very much, i just used Google for a little research and i only found open source and ecosystem mostly for business applications. So again are there any projects which try to make an ecosystem in an open source way?
