Free software on the Cloud The AWS Marketplace, which is generally used by software companies to market their commercial appliances and software for use in Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), now also lists free basic images of the Debian Linux 6.0.6, CentOS 6.3 and FreeBSD 9.0-Release operating systems.

The marketplace description misleadingly states that the free AMIs include support; looked at more closely, the product details note that the support involves users accessing the different open source projects' mailing lists and forums if required. Marketplace operator Amazon does not provide any support.

Free AMIs for Debian Linux, CentOS, FreeBSD and many other Linux and BSD images have existed for some time and continue to also be available in the Community AMI area.
