Select your operating system then your computing needs and let appShoot find the best free open source or similarly licensed software and games to meet your needs. Database updated Sat 5th Aug. 2019
Nothing in this list contains malware/virus/trojan code that I am aware of; although, anything labeled freeware is more likely to contain it than open source. As a matter of fact, I have never had any open source program install any malicious code! Either way, use caution when installing any software, scan with a virus scanner and/or search Google for bad experiences with a product by other users if you are unsure. Feel free to contact me if you suspect anything on these lists.
I cannot guarantee any item on this list as safe, especially freeware, use these products at your own risk. By following links on this list or using products listed herein you are agreeing that I am not in anyway liable for any and all damages that may occur from the use of any software application you may choose to install.
Please read licensing for any products you use and make sure the licensing hasn't changed since I posted. Some things become pay products (mainly freeware) when I am not looking and it's hard to keep track of everything. Please email me if this happens, or if a link becomes broken, it would be very helpful!
If you use GPL or other open source licensed software please consider donating money to the developers of the products you use or find most useful. It helps to keep them making great free software and guarantees these products continue getting better for future use. For more information on Open Source software please visit The Open Source Foundation. For a new an interesting way to donate see Flattr
