All Programs have a desire to be useful - MCP

So in the spirit of making it a free system once again, here are some software projects released under a variety of Open Source licenses (mainly the GPL, with the odd stir of MIT and BSD).

So feel free to peruse the software using the menu links or wander the GIT repositories. I've recently switched to GIT from SVN, so undoubtedly GIT will see a massive drop in popularity.

For anyone coming from an older link note that there was a disaster involving the site (you mean you? - ed), so not everything that used to be here is back; without some of the older build environments they may never be back.
