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 â 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.
