Whatever you do, don’t let commercial software stand in the way of what you want to do. For every expensive word processing program like Microsoft Word or complicated-to-load audio editing application, there’s usually a free alternative. So you ask, “How in the heck do I find the free stuff?” I thought you’d never ask.
Enter AlternativeTo.net. It’s a new approach to finding good software. Go to the website and enter what application you want to replace and they’ll give you suggestions on great alternatives! Instead of listing thousands of more or less crappy applications in a category, they 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.
Give it a try and see what it comes up with. Who knows, you might just find something that will save you both money and headaches.
