We believe that Linux and the Free Software ecosystem play a vital part in underpinning an open, co-operative and global internet. We are proud to give back and offer sponsorship to teams publishing free software using our network.
Here are some examples of the exciting projects we currently sponsor:
Debian is an operating system and distribution of Free Software based on Linux. It is maintained and developed by a global group of volunteers.
MySociety is a non-profit social enterprise, based in the UK and working internationally. They build online technologies that give people the power to get things changed and share these technologies so that they can be used anywhere.
Open Street Map
OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. OSM has been motivated by restrictions on use or availability of map information across much of the world, and the advent of inexpensive portable satellite navigation devices.
LibreOffice is community-driven and developed software, and is a project of the not-for-profit organisation, The Document Foundation. LibreOffice is free and open source software, originally based on OpenOffice.org and is the most actively developed OpenOffice.org successor project.
Code Club supports a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for young people aged 9-13. They currently have more than 12000 clubs in over 160 countries, and our club projects have been translated into 28 languages.
Kodi is an award-winning free and open source software media player and entertainment hub that can be installed on Linux, OSX, Windows, iOS and Android. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, podcasts, and other digital media files from local and network storage media and the internet.
