Service Directory

by Free Software Foundation Contributions Published on Apr 07, 2005 12:43 PM
This is a list of people who have asked to be listed as offering support services for GNU and other free software for a fee or in some cases at no charge.

Note: This page was last updated on 2023-09-06. Please see the "updated" date below each entry. If you see that something is out-of-date, please send an email to

To have your information added to this list, please send an email to

The information comes from the people who asked to be listed. We do not include any information we know to be false, but we cannot check out any of the information; we are transmitting it to you as it was given to us and do not promise it is correct. Also, this is not an endorsement of the people listed here. We have no opinions and usually no information about the abilities of any specific person. We provide this list to enable you to contact service providers and decide for yourself whether to hire one.

Before the FSF will list your name in the Free Software Service Directory, we ask that you agree informally to the following terms:

  1. You will not restrict (except by copyleft) the use or distribution of any software, documentation, or other technical information you supply anyone in the course of modifying, extending, or supporting free software. This includes any information specifically designed to ameliorate the use of free software.
  2. You will not take advantage of contact made through the Service Directory to advertise an unrelated business (e.g., sales of proprietary information). You may spontaneously mention your availability for general consulting, but you should not promote a specific unrelated business unless the client asks.

Please include some indication of your rates, because otherwise users have nothing to go by. Please put each e-mail address inside “<>”. Please put nothing else inside “<>”. Thanks!

    Allegro Consultants, Inc, in association with DIS International, is now offering annual support contracts covering the GNU Compiler Collection and related tools, including the GCC C and C++ compilers for MPE/iX.

    The free GCC C and C++ compilers have been available on MPE/iX for several years now, and are used for mission-critical applications by many organizations including Hewlett-Packard. Until now, assistance was available only from Mark Klein of DIS on a limited, voluntary basis. Mark is the person who originally ported GCC to the HP e3000, and he continues to maintain the software and port new versions.

    Support contracts start at $1,995.00/year for an organization (unlimited number of HP e3000 computer systems) with two designated callers. Additional options are available for large organizations who need to designate more than two authorized callers, or who want the additional security of 24x7 coverage.
