Great Resource: Easily Find The Free Open Source Software You Want / Need

My father stubbornly refuses to make the leap from Windows to Linux despite my constant pleading and despite being highly annoyed at Microsoft's fascist licensing. He is convinced that there are no applications for Linux that can compare to those found in Windows. is my answer to his argument. It pairs open-source projects with their traditional expensive equivalents, making it easy to find exactly what you need: "Our mission is to provide easy access to high quality open source alternatives to well-known commercial products. And remember that open source software is also a freeware alternative."

Of course, there's always the programs you're just not willing to give up. He's a big fan of EVE Online, so i need to point out to him that he can run EVE natively in Linux through the magic of WINE. | | digg story
