How to Find Open Source Alternatives
opensourcealternative.to/whatever (or just
osalt.com/whatever) into your web browser. For example:
- Install Firefox (if you haven't already done so).
- Find replacements for software that you currently use (e.g., install and use OpenOffice.org instead of Microsoft Office).
- Try out Ubuntu's live CD (no installation necessary!)
