How to find linux replacements for Windows Programs at OSAlt.Com

by Harley Stagner on August 21, 2007

One of the biggest hurdles to new users of Linux is finding alternative software for some of their Windows applications that they were using. You could, of course, continue running Windows as a virtual machine on your Linux desktop. However, some people may want to transition to Linux completely.

The website OSAlt.Com hopes to remedy this situation. It has the largest database of open source alternative programs that I have seen. Just do a search in the top right for the Windows application that you want to replace with an open source equivalent.

If you find a really cool open source alternative for a Microsoft program, let me know in the comments…

Happy Searching!
