Open Source Madness

Seriously, I’m so sorry that I forgot to mention this particular bit of info.  Want Open Source?
We post scads of free downloads here on Lifehacker, but today instead of pimping yet another Google product, I’d like to tip my hat to the open source developers who release innovative, useful products that make our lives that much easier every day – because it’s our right, not privilege, to control our own data.

Open source roots are in the Unix operating system, but these days many "free as in speech" applications are available for Windows as well – and today I’ve got a list of my top 10 favorites.

None of these cost a dime to download and use, but do donate whatever and whenever you can to the projects that benefit you the most.

You know that’s got to be Lifehacker.  Sigh.  I would devote some quality time reading that article, if I were you.
Really, I should do a plug to another long-forgotten post that I made about subjects similiar to this right here in POW – the blog.
But I won’t.
See what I did there?
