NORFOLK, VA

Open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) remains among the most active in Business category

xTuple again has the honor of being named SourceForge "Project of the Month," placing its free and open source version of PostBooks® tops among the over 500,000 applications available for download from the largest, most trusted online resource for Open Source Software (OSS) discovery and development.

"We would like to thank everyone for the contributions that make xTuple the greatest open source ERP project," said xTuple CEO Ned Lilly. "Between the thousands of weekly downloads and tens of thousands of small and mid-sized companies using the ERP+CRM suite in production worldwide, we're gaining traction in the ERP marketplace, competing with and winning new customers against large, proprietary vendors."

PostBooks® fans are active users of xTuple's Forums where response times for community support are better than most software companies.

The SourceForge distinction comes during the 20th Anniversary of the 1988 creation and adoption of the “open source” label by a group of technology strategists in Palo Alto, California. That same year, the Open Source Initiative (OSI) was founded as a global non-profit to protect and promote open source software, development and communities, and to address any negative connotations of "free" software perceived in the business world at the time.

xTuple PostBooks® was also honored in 2013, voted by the Open Source community as SourceForge Project of the Month

 

In addition to xTuple, the following projects were featured:

  • Programming Without Coding Technology (PWCT), a general-purpose visual programming language designed for novice and expert programmers to create software without writing a single line of code. PWCT on SourceForge
  • Free Manga Downloader (FMD), an application written in Object-Pascal for managing and downloading manga from various websites. FMD on SourceForge
  • Bluestar Linux is an Arch Linux-based distribution, which can be installed permanently as a fully configurable operating system on a laptop or desktop, or it can be run as a live installer and supports the addition of persistent storage for those who choose not to perform a permanent installation. Bluestar Linux on SourceForge
