<h2>Links to Other Free Software Sites</h2>
<div class="thin"></div>

To help promote knowledge of free software that isn't
<a href="/philosophy/categories.html#GNUsoftware">GNU
software distributed by the FSF</a>, we have collected the following
links to other web sites that contain free software, or are 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 nonfree programs.  We would
be glad to know of other free software web sites that we could
link to here.
