    Open-Source Applications
    I just found an article on PC World that lists various open-source applications, such as: PDF Creator, spreadsheets, word processing, etc. Here is the link:

    Thanks! That is a very useful article because it doesn't just list the programs, it actually tells what they do and gives insight into how hard or easy they are to use.

    I've found this to be a pretty good place to find open source applications:

    http://www.osalt.com/

    You can choose a commercial application and it'll list the most similar open source alternatives.

    Also, searching directly on sf.net (Source Forge) can be good, but there is a bunch of open source garbage out there too.

    freshmeat.net is another good site for finding open source tools, albeit with a geekier bent.
    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.
