The project is aimed at selecting applications, and building an entire system based exclusively on open source software, functionally equivalent to that of computers using proprietary software.
The principal expected benefits of the project are savings and reducing the dependence on proprietary software vendors.
Open source applications selected for the system includes:
- operating system: Linux
- office suite: LibreOffice
- video and audio reproduction: VLC Player
- web browser: Mozilla Firefox
- mail client: Mozilla Thunderbird
