Big list of open source applications - by category

, posted: 24-Sep-2007 18:13

Here is a pretty big list of open source applications, organised by category. There should be something for everyone in there.

They currently have 480 apps. That's quite a bit but still much less than what's actually out there. It's only a start, though. I expect this list to grow over time. You can submit new apps yourself, if you know of any that are not included there.

Update: I just found another such list of open source programs specifically for graphics applications, including screenshots. This is actually split over two pages.

Update 2: And here is another list.

Chakkaradeep: Yes, I know about that one. I linked to it in the second article of my 'Becoming Windows-free' series. It's a nicely done list.

Clement: Thanks, but I didn't really generate those lists. I just found them and linked to them. So, go ahead and add the links to your site as you see fit. I'm sure the original authors of those lists wouldn't mind.
