So it is not a coincidence that Finnish software is over-engineered, innovative, honest, secure and uncompromised. Actually, this is something we should be proud of. Even brag about. But we don’t. As Finns are also humble, modest and unpretentious. We let Finnish software prove itself. We are the land of Linux, Nokia, F-Secure, Stonesoft, SSH, Rovio and Supercell.

Finnish software is an engineering masterpiece, a text book example of best practice software development. In todays world, don’t settle for second best or compromised software – insist on software from Finland!
