FREE Alternatives to PAID Software!

Hey,
Ive seen a few threads asking for alternatives for Photoshop or Microsoft word ect, so i decided to show you guys a website that shows you TONS of free alternatives to any program you can think of, paid or free.
I was looking for a website like this forever,and now ive finally found it.
Here it is guys:

Alternative software and apps to your PC (Windows, Linux), Mac, iPhone, Android, Web/Online and other platforms. - AlternativeTo.net

I think its a great website, just search for whatever program you want such as "Photoshop" and free alternatives will pop up.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for that. It is helpful..as I'm not one to spend money on software, but I also don't pirate software either.

+1 I completely agree.

Many free alternatives are just as good. With the exception of a few I've found where theres really no good suitable free solution for the features I want, a purchase may be needed.

Still, Free alternative over Pirating is certainly the way to go.
