The Free Software community is not only composed of software projects, so this month I’ll include two projects whose goal is not to develop software (at least not directly).
- AdBlock for Google Chrome (Flattr link) is the famous extension used to hide all the advertisements on the web.
- The Chakra Project (Flattr link) is an Arch Linux derivative focusing on KDE. They are also experimenting with an “Half Rolling Release” meaning that the core/base packages are only updated from time to time once they are know to be stable while the rest is frequently updated.
- TuxFamily (Flattr link) is a non-profit organization providing (free) hosting services to Free Software projects. Web hosting of course (with PHP/MySQL/PostgreSQL to be able to run various web applications) but also VCS repositories, mailing lists, DNS and plain email accounts.
- pdfreaders.org (Flattr link) is a not a software but a campaign organized by the Free Software Fundation Europe to stop promoting Adobe’s PDF reader on government websites. Instead they are encouraging people to put a link to this website promoting open-source PDF readers.
