Where Is The Source Code? A List from Popular FLOSS Projects

If you heard the terms free software and open source , you will grasp the idea that each of those software provides you the source code. If you are a GNU/linux user, it's your right to ask where the source code is. But where the source code is, you ask. For popular public free software: the source code is available at each of their particular places on the internet. This article provides links to access the source code of popular free software projects such as GNU OS, Linux, KDE, LibreOffice, GIMP, until Slackware and Ubuntu. If you are new in free software, it is a good chance for you to study how the community works. Enjoy!

The Terms

There is " free software ", there is " open source ", and there is " FLOSS " (Free/Libre Open Source Software) so there are three different terms to express (more or less) a same class of software. For your information, free software is a class of software that respects the user's freedom; a direct opposite to nonfree software. In this article, I use "free software" term to call every software and I hope this won't be confusing for you.

1. GNU Operating System

http://savannah.gnu.org/

GNU is a free UNIX-like operating system available as source code. GNU OS is developed by The GNU Project . If you wonder how GNU is, look at any GNU/Linux distribution such as Debian or Ubuntu, they are basically GNU in runnable versions. We recognize GNU from its components, so you will see GRUB bootloader, Glibc, GNU Stdc++, GTK+, GIMP, sed, awk, cut, dd, du, df, are example parts of GNU. GNU hosts its source code at a place called "Savannah", it is similar with GitHub or Sourceforge. If you want to list all source code line by line, see Savannah Cgit . If you want to download each source code as package file per version, see GNU FTP .

X Window System is a fundamental "layer" of software as a basis of any graphical interface (window manager and desktop environment) in a GNU/Linux or UNIX-like operating system.

The source code releases of X is available at X.Org Archive and mirror list .
