The FSF's Holiday Giving Guide is scheduled to launch in November, so
I'm putting out a call for product suggestions. Stuff that's new this
year is especially welcome, but we're not limiting ourselves to new
Here's last year's guide: www.fsf.org/givingguide/2015
And the list of ideas that have been proposed so far:
Please reply all with any suggestions you'd like to make.
Just so summarise suggestions that I've seen so far, I especially like the
suggestions for kids and hope at least some can make it into this year's Giving
Guide. Let me know if I forgot anything/anyone.
Minetest instead of Minecraft
Desktop with Sugar instead of Chromebooks
Kerbal Space Program for GNU/Linux instead of Elite Dangerous
OsmAnd with a device mounting system instead of a Garmin or Google Maps
GitLab instead of GitHub
ownCloud instead of Google Drive
LittleBits instead of Lego
Colobot: a game where you can program your own robots to explore the
fictional planets of the game. Story mode is very challenging and
interesting. Although I haven't played it for a while.
