Links to Other Free Software Sites

To help promote knowledge of free software that isn't GNU software distributed by the FSF, we have collected the following links to other web sites that contain free software, or is directly related to the issue of free software.

We do not have links to web sites of the well-known GNU/Linux system distributions, or to the well-known BSD system distributions, because all those sites explicitly describe, and facilitate access to, various non-free programs. We would be glad to know of other free software web sites that we could link to here.

The FSF is not responsible for the content of other web sites, or how up-to-date their content is.

Free GNU/Linux distributions

See here for information about fully-free GNU/Linux distributions.

Other free operating systems

We would especially like to know of other free operating systems that have a policy not to include, or recommend, non-free software. Developers of such operating systems that wish us to be aware of their system should contact <gnu@gnu.org>. These systems also follow our Guidelines for Free System Distributions.
