Software Alternatives

Not really a web tip but today I have a very useful software tip. Following on from the last post about a free alternative to Photoshop, I thought we'd take a look at some other alternatives to popular software packages for Windows, Mac, Linux and online software.

Rather than give you another great software suggestion, I am going to point you to the motherload that is the website "AlternativeTo". This website is an excellent resource for alternative software.

From the website:

AlternativeTo is a new approach to finding good software. Tell us what application you want to replace and we give you suggestions on great alternatives! Instead of listing thousands of more or less crappy applications in a category, we make each application into a category. Think of it like forever evolving blog posts about good alternatives to the software that you're not satisfied with. And the "blog posts" are generated by you through suggestions, comments and votes.

Visit the site: AlterntiveTo

*Editor's Note: This one is going straight to the pool room!
