Open Source Software / Free Software page

Submitted by jbreland on Tue, 02/25/2003 - 21:22

I finally got around to putting up an Open Source Software / Free Software page on my site.  It's intended to be a general resource for newbies and experienced users alike.  It's still under planning and construction, but so far I have four main areas:

  • What is it? - written to provide decent introduction to the whole concept of OSS and FS for those not already familiar with it
  • The Case for OSS - points out all of the benefits for using OSS/FS in the home and at work, including why it's a "Good Thing"  (still under construction)
  • List of Applications - contains a list of and links to the applications that I personally consider to be among the best OSS/FS available
  • Tips and Tricks - contains HOWTO-like documents on various topics that I've written to make things easier/better

This section of the website will pretty much be under permanent construction, with the apps list and howto section updated as often as I discover a new app or write a new document.  Of course, I'm always open to suggestions, so PLEASE e-mail me about anything you think could improve the site, including corrections, new apps, new HOWTO suggestions, etc.  Also, please feel free to drop me a line just to let me know what you think about it.
