Summary: Pages of popular free software applications for different categories that we recommend replacing common proprietary applications. Ceasing to use proprietary applications is a good way to start migrating to freedom.

We have a separate list for each operating system because some free replacements don't run on all the operating system. After you replace the nonfree apps, how about replacing the nonfree system with a free GNU/Linux distribution next? For your freedom's sake.
