opensource-softwaresIn a crowded place like Internet,everyone rushes to promote their Products through promoted reviews and Ads,So as a user you might get your mind blank when it comes to choosing a best product for you,Most commonly the Software products.

Windows and Mac Os are the most used proprietary OS though the better alternatives like Linux are still available for Free.The most acceptable reason for this is a lack of Awareness about Opensource software’s and its benefits, Even if some people turnout to try any Linux distro, they happen to switch back after some time due to unavailability of required software’s,But in reality this isn’t due to inadequate software’s its because of inadequate temperament to find the software’s.

In this post I take the opportunity to list some common places where you can easily find Opensource software’s alternatives.
