Welcome to the Free Software Directory, a catalog of free software that anyone can edit.

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 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.
