:SaaSS means using a service implemented by someone else as a substitute for running your copy of a program. The term is ours; articles and ads won't use it, and they won't tell you whether a service is SaaSS. Instead they will probably use the vague and distracting term “cloud”, which lumps SaaSS together with various other practices, some abusive and some ok. With the explanation and examples in this page, you can tell whether a service is SaaSS.

While solving the problem of SaaSS may seem sufficient, this doesn't solve other issues related to centralization and lack of standardization or of security. This page preferably lists software that helps people self-host their activities in the Internet while also providing some level of federation with other hosts; secondly, it lists replacements for some SaaSS variants in case there is no federated or no distributed self-hosted equivalent.

These are free/libre software replacements for Service as a Software Substitutes (which are sometimes also referred to as Web services or network services).

On the Internet, proprietary software isn't the only way to lose your freedom. Service as a Software Substitute, or SaaSS, is another way to let someone else have power over your computing.
SaaSS means using a service implemented by someone else as a substitute for running your copy of a program. The term is ours; articles and ads won't use it, and they won't tell you whether a service is SaaSS. Instead they will probably use the vague and distracting term “cloud”, which lumps SaaSS together with various other practices, some abusive and some ok. With the explanation and examples in this page, you can tell whether a service is SaaSS.
