<h2>What We Provide</h2>

<p>What the FSF provides to computer users, above all, is the chance to
use a computer in freedom—using <a
href="/philosophy/free-sw.html">free software</a>.</p>

<p>Since 1985 the FSF has sponsored the development of the free software
operating system <a href="/gnu/gnu-history.html">GNU</a>.  The <a
href="/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html">GNU/Linux</a> variant of GNU is already
widely used.  The GNU/Hurd system, based on our <a
href="/software/hurd/hurd.html">GNU Hurd</a> kernel, is ready for
wizards and enthusiasts to try.  A wide variety of GNU software in
general <a href="/software/software.html">is available for download</a>.</p>

<p>Things you can obtain directly from the FSF include:</p>

  <li><a href="http://member.fsf.org">Associate Membership</a></li>
  <li><a href="http://patron.fsf.org">Corporate Patronage</a></li>
