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 is a project of the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). 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.

If you are looking for a full operating system for your computer, please see our recommendations for complete GNU/Linux systems.

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

Please suggest new packages through our Entry Form.

Programs occasionally change licenses, and we do not always find out. If you find a program here which appears to be non-free, please send mail to bug-directory@fsf.org and state the program's name.
