Anti-Subscription Software Catalog

Bookmarked Anti-Subscription Software Catalog (

This website is a catalogue of non-subscription, free, open-source, and one-time fee software — which can provide relief from monopolized and financialized platforms. Why? The subscription cost can rise at any time, implement region-based barriers, and use deceptive design interactions to entice with tiered features. Say no to creative rent! Just A-S-C instead.

“Say no to creative rent” — I like it.

I use the Affinity Suite for my personal creative work.
