(Garbo archives) Garbo Shareware and Freeware Programs Library

An important note: The workstation hosting Garbo at the University of Vaasa, Finland, has broken down in 2012. This is final. The university's ICT Management informs that the broken workstation will not be replaced. Thus the Garbo library has ceased to exist. The relevant copyrights, however, are not released.

Likewise, the program packages from Prof. (emer.) Timo Salmi are not available any more. However, the following selections from Timo still continue to be downloadable from a private server: tscmd.zip tsbat.zip tsfaqp.zip tslin.zip. Also see: tscmd.php and tsfaq.htm.

About Shareware

Many if not most of the programs which were at Garbo archives are distributed as shareware. Please duly observe the shareware concept. Shareware programs are not free. Getting them from an archive site is not enough. After a trial period you will have to register. Please always see the relevant program's documentation for the registration details.
