This guide is meant to provide the user with resources for a variety of projects. There is a wealth of high quality free and open software available, often times with similar functionality to more cost-prohibitive options. This guide is not attempting to make claims about these alternatives being higher quality than their alternatives, but only to provide them as option.
Open-source software refers to software whose author's have made the source code available, and granted users the rights to distribute and edit freely, ie. an open license. Open-source does not translate to meaning free, but many open-source software projects are also free.
Alternatively, there are many free software available which do not have open licenses.
