Welcome ...

...to one of the best WEB site for Open Source Software  for AIX®. Here, you will find most of the serious and important open source programs ported on AIX®. Our main difference is that all our software is packaged in backup/restore format (the famous bff file needed by installp and smit). Feel free to download them as needed (by the way, we had to compress the bff file into an .exe file in order to reduce the transfer time) and dont forget that another way to take advantage of all these freewares is to simply buy our CD(s) on which the software is directly smit installable. We also provide the source code of all our open source software on CD.
We try (and that's sometimes very hard) to be the most complete WEB site about open source on AIX®.
