Filezilla facts

FileZilla Facts

FileZilla was created by Tim Kosse and two classmates as a computer science project in 2001

When deciding on which license to release the code, they chose GNU Public License because they didn’t think they would sell any copies if they used a commercial license

(FileZilla, n.d.)

Today, FileZilla is listed as the 11th most downloaded project of all time on SourceForge.net (2008) with almost 36 million downloads

Won the 2006 Community Choice Award for the Networking category on SourceForge (2008)
