Welcome to Open Source Options dedicated to helping people and businesses discover the world of free and open source software.

We aim to give you clear, practical help and tips to use your computer to get things done. You will find posts about different types of high quality office and design applications. With resources, commentary and support, you could have fun and may even find you save yourself some money!

Did we say, we also do all this in person too? Local drop-ins for local people — if you are local to us here in the UK. Check out the sidebar for details. We are working in partnership with the library service in the London Borough of Redbridge to offer this service completely free of charge.
