It’s maddening sometimes to find out that you could move an organization from Windows to Linux on the Desktop, but there are a couple of applications that you can’t find any replacement for. There is another place you can look, it’s called the Linux App Finder.

Take a few minutes to peruse the categories, and try the search dialog, taking care to use the name of the app you are trying to replace, or it’s competitors.

Another place for searching for app replacement is the awesome Freshmeat repository, which has been a favorite of mine for years.

UPDATE: How cool, I found a great site where you can discover all the Open Source Windows alternatives for all who have to wring every second of value out of those old Windows PC’s.
