Futurewatch: Find awesome open-source apps at Open Source Alternative

14 07 2007


Website Open Source Alternative (osalt.com) lets you search for a commercial program, and then finds open-source alternatives that do the same thing, or vice-versa. It’s a pretty great site if you’re looking at a commercial program but don’t want to spend the money to buy it. You can often find open-source programs that do the same thing, often better, for free.

I put this as futurewatch because the site is still pretty new. Its database gets bigger every day, but there is still a lot more to add. Not to say it isn’t great now, but give it 6 months to a year and it will be a great alternative for sourceforge.
