What is free software?

Free software is a matter of liberty, not price. Think of "free" as in "free speech," not as in "free beer." Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software.

The Free Software Directory (FSD, or simply Directory) is a project of the Free Software Foundation (FSF). We catalog useful free software that runs under free operating systems — particularly the GNU operating system and its GNU/Linux variants.

Licenses are verified for each and every program listed in this directory. We also warn for software with antifeatures.

If you are looking for a full operating system for your computer, please see our list of free GNU/Linux distributions. For software only available on non-GNU/Linux operating systems see: free software for Windows, free software for iOS, and free software for Android on F-Droid (which contains a small percent of software with nonfree issues which are prominently warned about prior to install).

The FSF provides this directory as a service to the free software community. Please consider donating to the FSF to help support this project.
