== Non-Free Software ==
In addition to [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Software Free Software] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source_software Open Source Software] programs, there are no cost, shareware and commercial genealogy applications. It is not the goal of the GRAMPS Gramps project to promote such products, since they do not preserve the user's freedom and can lock the user's data out of his/her control.
For more information on no cost, shareware and commercial, see [httphttps://www.cyndislist.com/software.htm Cyndi's List] or [http://geneasofts.geneanet.org/en/ Geneasoft].
