everything wrong with free software

 "free as in speech"

### more libre software directory *originally posted:* nov 2021 *updated:* feb 2022 the software directory that removed 1000s of github-based entries before it even went online! also no sympathy for: * gnome * lying, backstabbing frauds (you think they care about your freedom?) * java not the most complete software directory-- only the most free! (feel free to try if you can make a better one) ## recommendations: * operating system: openbsd or hyperbola => http://www.openbsd.org/ * window manager: dwm => http://dwm.suckless.org/ * shell: pdksh => http://cvsweb.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/bin/ksh/ * web browser: tor-browser => https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html these are real recommendations (in other words, it would be good to try these projects) but some of them have problems: * openbsd has non-free firmware (this is a problem from hyperbolas standpoint, they will hopefully solve this) * pdksh is permissively (though freely) licensed, but it is much easier to learn, use and maintain than bash * tor-browser is written in rust, which isnt a real programming language but a "nebulous programming interface". perhaps other browsers with torsocks would be better... some people dont believe tor offers anonymity; it still bypasses nationwide censorship in a number of countries ## the linux kernel will never be free! this list starts with the fsd, then removes thousands of entries and MOST metadata-- down to the urls first (one url per entry). the urls are the basis of the new database. all entries should be rebuilt from there. ### the license for the database is cc-by-sa 4.0. this is not the fsd, and the fdl is not a free license. (the gpl is). IF YOU DONT LIKE JAVASCRIPT, THE ENTRIES ARE CODED IN GEMTEXT-- JUST DOWNLOAD THE PAGE SOURCE. javascript (freely licensed) is only needed for viewing nicely in a browser. ## these pages are where the entries are moving to: => mlsd-0-9.html mlsd-0-9 => mlsd-a.html mlsd-a => mlsd-b.html mlsd-b => mlsd-c.html mlsd-c => mlsd-d.html mlsd-d => mlsd-e.html mlsd-e => mlsd-f.html mlsd-f => mlsd-g.html mlsd-g => mlsd-h.html mlsd-h => mlsd-i.html mlsd-i => mlsd-j.html mlsd-j => mlsd-k.html mlsd-k => mlsd-l.html mlsd-l => mlsd-m.html mlsd-m => mlsd-n.html mlsd-n => mlsd-o.html mlsd-o => mlsd-p.html mlsd-p => mlsd-q.html mlsd-q => mlsd-r.html mlsd-r => mlsd-s.html mlsd-s => mlsd-t.html mlsd-t => mlsd-u.html mlsd-u => mlsd-v.html mlsd-v => mlsd-w.html mlsd-w => mlsd-x.html mlsd-x => mlsd-y.html mlsd-y => mlsd-z.html mlsd-z ### entries: ### Ferass EL HAFIDI - NotABug.org => https://notabug.org/vitali64 notes: ``` tags: ``` ### RosarioSIS | Free Student Information System for school management => https://www.rosariosis.org/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### osboot/nvmutils => https://notabug.org/osboot/nvmutils notes: ``` tags: ``` ### Natlog V 3.00.01 => https://fbb-git.gitlab.io/natlog/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### Stealth V 4.03.03 => https://fbb-git.gitlab.io/stealth/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### Bisonc++ V 6.04.04 => https://fbb-git.gitlab.io/bisoncpp/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University high-performance computing cluster C H P O X => http://cluster.univ.kiev.ua/eng/chpx notes: ``` tags: ``` ### Flexc++ V 2.11.02 => https://fbb-git.gitlab.io/flexcpp/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### Oxref V 2.00.03 => https://fbb-git.gitlab.io/oxref/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### Icmake V 10.03.01 => https://fbb-git.gitlab.io/icmake/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### vshnu: the New Visual Shell => http://kinzler.com/me/vshnu/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### xml2var => http://www.antitachyon.com/Content/Utilities/xml2var notes: ``` tags: ``` ### soju IRC bouncer => https://soju.im/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### vely:Welcome to Vely => https://vely.dev/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### PILA Home Page => https://web.archive.org/web/20130117082231/http://pila.codigolivre.org.br/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### Elpher: a gopher and gemini client for GNU Emacs => https://thelambdalab.xyz/elpher/ notes: ``` tags: ``` ### 4Pane.
