FreedomSampler™ is a CD-Rom compiled by Twisted Lincoln, Inc.™ that hopes to promote and encourage the adoption of Free Software by offering alternatives to the proprietary applications that currently dominate the market. The intention behind FreedomSampler™ is to promote Free Software through the active redistribution of alternatives to existing products.

Each application and utility included in a FreedomSampler™ disc is hand chosen to serve as a direct replacement for a commonly utilized proprietary program. 

Moreover, a key requirement of the project is portability -- all included applications on a FreedomSampler™ disc have versions available for both Microsoft Windows® and GNU/Linux.  This allows for an easier transition for those hoping to move from a proprietary operating system to one based on freedom.


Here's a list of all the great programs found within the FreedomSampler™ disc:

LibreOffice® Word processor, spreadsheet, presentation & database
