Compute Freely

About Compute Freely

Compute Freely was started to be a friendly jumping in point for people completely new to the concept of Free and Open Source operating systems and Linux distributions but otherwise have some curiousity about them.

Unlike some sites, Compute Freely does away with a lot of the technical jargon and pageranking to determine "popularity". Instead it presents some basic info about using Linux and provides a curated list of distributions that may strike a variety of interests or skill levels.

Plus each distribution gets a simple page with the "essentials"—we're not keeping the most accurate records or anything—and people can jump around and explore via tags.
