Free programs for eaters. Linux and deadly sins tenth part

Drawing of a fat man.

The road to Hell is paved by free and open source software. To prove it we are doing a compilation of programs that will help us to commit mortal sins. In this case we will refer to free programs for eaters. It is that in our list it was the turn of the sin of gluttony. Do not be impatient, the next one will be on the subject that you are all waiting for. That we have known each other for a long time.

In case you did not read the previous articles, I reiterate that my intention is not to disrespect any religious belief. I am simply recycling the knowledge that I had left from my forced attendance at catechism when I was nine years old.

I'm not a beer drinker (or any other alcoholic beverage, in case you were wondering if my posts are the product of drunkenness), but from what my friends who love this drink say, many of the craft ones justify including their production in the code criminal, or at least qualify as a sin.
