One-Stop Shopping for Open Source Manuals

Filed under
OSS

Every so often, we at OStatic compile documentation and guidance resources for popular open source platforms and applications, and one of the best ongoing projects for producing free open source-related documentation is FLOSS Manuals. It's an ongoing and ambitious effort to build online guides for open source software that we initially covered in this post. FLOSS Manuals provides reference resources for titles such as OpenOffice, Firefox, Audacity, Blender, Inkscape and more. There are also several new types of documentation on the site, and our updated guide to FLOSS Manuals is found here.

One of the newest guides on FLOSS Manuals, which will be of interest to many browser users, is a complete guide to Chromium--the open source core of Google's Chrome browser.
