The OSSwin project: Open Source for Windows!

Support This Project

(24/12/2005): OSSwin now also has a separate games page. Go check it out and please promote the organization of an Open-Source-only LAN-party in your neighbourhood!

Please also report broken links to the osswin-users mailinglist, and if you really like this list and want to keep me motivated, then just send me something from my wishlist which can be found somewhere over here.

Cheers,
Bart Vandewoestyne
