If you’re anything like me, you’re cheap and like to get things for free. I am a huge computer geek so I am always looking for free software that can help make my life easier, and now there’s a directory that lists all kinds of software that is open source and is free to everyone.
Open Source Living was just recently created and has exploded in popularity in the recent weeks. Directories don’t usually do very well, but this directory does so many things right. The design looks nice, it doesn’t look like a typical web directory, it contains only high quality and reputable software, and everything listed on the site is free. It’s just a very valuable resource all around.
Open Source Living contains pretty much everything you can think of that you would need on your computer. There are sections for web tools, graphics and photo, audio, web development, entertainment, content management, and more. Can’t afford Photoshop? Check out Gimp. Don’t wanna drop thousands of dollars down for Final Cut Pro? Take a look at Jahshaka. There is a tool here for anything you might need and they are adding more every day.
