I’ve mentioned both my affection for free software and [Free Software Magazine](http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com) before. Well now I can link the two as I have had two articles published in the latest issue (15) of FSM.
The first is a [beginners guide](http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/articles/beginners_guide_understanding_free_software) to understanding free software which does exactly what it says on the tin (I hope).
The second is a review of [GRAMPS](http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/articles/genealogy_with_gramps) which is a free software licenced genealogical application.
If you are interested in free software or just want to know what the fuss is about I recommend the first one. The second will be of interest if – like myself and many – you are interested in family trees and the like.
