Windows 7: Good Site For Alternative Software

Good Site For Alternative Software

I've noticed that a lot of people post threads asking for alternative software. So I just thought I'd post a site that (to me anyway) has been extremely useful. It's called AlternativeTo.

Simply search any software and 9 times out of 10, it'll come up with a dozen similar programs with reviews, descriptions etc.
