Top 50 Open Source Alternatives

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Cool Website

 

I saw this page linked in a couple of news sources. I didn't think I'd be impressed until I actually visited the page. They've provided information on some Open Source programs I've never heard of that sound just super.

The Top 50 Proprietary Programs that Drive You Crazy — and Their Open Source Alternatives

The following fifty proprietary programs are listed in no particular order within broad categories along with their open source alternatives. In some cases you could probably write your own book on frustrations with the proprietary programs shown here. In other cases, you’ll discover that the open source alternative isn’t quite up to snuff yet. And, in other cases still, you’ll learn that some proprietary programs are real gems, but that the open source advocate can replace those gems with equally shiny objects from the open source repertoire.
