715 Open Source Software Applications
Ultimate list of open source software
December 29, 2010
Are you wondering what Linux and Free/Open Source software have to offer you? Check out Cynthia Harvey's monster list of 715 FOSS applications for all occasions and all operating systems.
This list of open source software applications covers the gamut ��� and then some. After all, 'tis the season to overindulge, and in honor of the occasion we've put together a list with more open source software than anyone can digest in one sitting. Gulp.
We've updated last year's Monster List of Open Source Downloads ��� getting rid of the projects that are no longer active and adding the projects that were featured on Datamation for the first time this year. The result is a sprawling list of 715 noteworthy tools from the open source community.
Of course, with any list this long, some of the apps are more mature than others. And it's even possible that we may have overlooked some great open source apps. Feel free to add your suggestions for next year's open source monster list in the comments section below.
