I notice that there is no section for alternatives to Windows :-).
* It appears most items on the list are FOSS [Free & Open Source Software]. I am not claiming to have read or inspected any/all of the software licensing governing any/all of the software or software projects on the list. There. Hopfully that will deter a lot of stupid ******* replies.
