Open Source is a global initiative that covers much more than just computer software. To get a feeling for the wider aspects of open source, visit the Wikipedia article here...

In terms of computer applications, the key aspect of open source movement is that they are both free and also free to copy and share!

Here we have links to the official websites from which you can download some of the applications that we use in our IT Group - enjoy!

    Firefox web browser for all systems plus much more.

     

    OpenOffice.org - a full office suite including word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, database and drawing applications that is compatible with Microsoft Office. We use Apache OpenOffice to produce our sister publication, Clarborough & Welham Newsletter.

    Libre Office is a ‘fork’ from the original OpenOffice programme and provides an alternative to Apache’s application having some advantages.

    Gimp image editor - by the way, meet Wilbur, Gimp’s mascot!

     

    Audacity application for recording and editing sounds

     

    Inkscape application for vector graphics

    VLC multimedia player

To this list we would also add the following free security applications:

Avira Free Antivirus

Avast Free Antivirus

CCleaner - free up space and get rid of junk

Malwarebytes Free - does what it says on the label - and more.
