      Hello Shawn, its one of the great article:-). Thanks a lot for given your ideas on here. Shall i know? why you din’t add remaining open source on here ?

      • Shawn

        Well, here I just wanted to focus on the importance of open source as I still find people who consider open source a crap which we know well is not. So i made a great list which is like the most common names and put it here. Rest is like we all are professionals and we use a lot of softwares so the list will just go on and on.
        Any way thanks a lot for spending time reading this and appreciating.

      • Shawn

        Ya, I know I skipped out a lot even others who read this told me I forgot VLC and all others, I just wanted to emphasize the iportance of open source and that is what I’ve done. Its great that you poited out another one.

    • Mani Viswanathan @ DailyBlogging

      Nice list of Open Source apps/sites. But you missed out on Mozilla (Firefox).

    • shyam jos

      open source rocks

      • Jasmine

        Yeah, that includes WordPress of course. I wonder if WordPress is the most popular open source software?

        • Shawn

          Well WP is the most popular in the web building scenario and the best part is you can develop it according to your uses. The only demerit with WP is our imagination !!

    • Nasir

      Nice research about different Operating Systems and CMS, most of the points we have already knew, but there is no end of knowledge. Any how thanks for your efforts………..!

    • Sam @ Weekend Getaways

    • Deepak Eapen

      Superb and informative post.. Hats off to the author !

    • Usman

      redhat is opensource? really.

      • Rohit Batra @ IpodTouch4G

        i also think that RedHat is not open source.. its desktop version costs about 49 USD..

    • DailyAppNews

      Free things are always waited for. In addition, the free things can help us to make money. not all of the free things are bad. there are so many free things are good.
      All of free things that you mentioned are good and useful for many people.

    • Praveen

      Nice list…
      but no SUN products are listed!

      • Rohit Batra @ IpodTouch4G

        there is a Sun Product in the image “openoffice.org” .. These are all widely used open source products very useful and feature-full.. VLC and Firefox are also one of the most used open source products..

    • Tessa

      Hi Shawn,
      you are right, there are still some free of charge useful things. As for Ubuntu, it is fun, for those who love to try new things and hate to clean system junk from time to time. No virus — this is one of Ubuntu advantage. Personally, I’d love a dual boot. Ubuntu for most of work and windows for something I cannot do in Ubuntu, e.g. using PPLive to watch illegal tv shows online.
      Regards. Tessa

    • Renji

      Proud to be using almost all of them! 😀

    • Riya @ Couponseasy

      These are great open sources and I like Google Chrome and WordPress very much.

    • aswin

      U can add alot VLC, Firefox etc

      Good idea, Nice post

    • Pankaj Gupta

      Yes and I think all are equally important for all of us.

    • Puneet Sahalot

      Great list and open source is creating wonders… the list can go on and on….
      I am still waiting for some alternatives for Graphics Designing. Though GIMP is there, it needs lot of improvements.
