Welcome to the Free Software Directory
A collaborative catalog of 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.

More about the Directory

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 GNU-like systems, not limited to the GNU operating system and its GNU/Linux variants. Many of those programs also runs on proprietary operating systems which can be used to replace nonfree software.

If you are looking for a full operating system for your computer, please see our list of free GNU/Linux distributions.


The FSD is made thanks to user contributions and our stack that consists of MediaWiki, Debian package repository data, and more. Licenses are verified for each and every program listed in this directory.

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