GNU Testimonials—CAD/CAM Development

From: Jerome Haguet

A French CAD/CAM company is leveraging the power of GNU tools to build software for mechanical, nuclear, and bridge engineers. An eight-developer team is responsible for 15 applications that contain a total of 2.5 million lines of code. These applications are used in 25 different countries.

All of these developers use EMACS, CVS, and GNATS. They use Apache and Perl as an Intranet solution, as well. Other GNU tools, such as GCC and gdb, are used from time to time.

 [FSF logo] “Our mission is to preserve, protect and promote the freedom to use, study, copy, modify, and redistribute computer software, and to defend the rights of Free Software users.”

The Free Software Foundation is the principal organizational sponsor of the GNU Operating System. Support GNU and the FSF by buying manuals and gear, joining the FSF as an associate member, or making a donation, either directly to the FSF or via Flattr.
