Freeware Sources

Our purpose in this page is to compile information about Freeware sources Clearly other sites have similar objectives, and we restrict the information here as much as possible to pointers to other general sites (meta-sites), rather than give information about specific Freeware products, with possible exception for major freeware products. Other issues about freeware (benchmarks, licenses, ...) are considered in other pages of this site.

If you are aware of other archive or products that should be listed here, please forward this information to the maintainer of this page Bernard.Lang@inria.fr.

As an example of shareware licensing, see the license of Paint Shop Pro at http://www.jasc.com/legal.html.
