Launching: The Mostly Harmless USB Disk

An answer to the ultimate free software problem:

If your 3D printer uses Marlin, this service provides on-demand pre-compiled firmware so you don't have to do it yourself. Good example of a #freesoftware business that offers convenience while respecting your freedom and the license.
