Source Software on a 700MB CD. Launched in 2006, the TTCS OSSWIN CD
was garnered many favourable reviews from various websites and has
found use in many countries at many events over the past 5 years.
The TTCS OSSWIN CD was also updated in August 2011 in time for SFD

download the 700MB CD via direct download.
Also available is the TTCS FSWIN CD, a compilation of Free Software
for Windows 7/Vista/XP.
Free Software is software that meets the Free Software Foundation’s
(FSF) definition at http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html
The impetus for the TTCS FSWIN CD came from a request from someone
from Free Software Foundation Europe (FSF Europe)
(http://www.fsfe.org/). Details about the TTCS FSWIN CD, including the
download mirror can be found at http://www.ttcsweb.org/fswin-cd/
