I was suprised at the amount of really solid open source alternatives there are on this site. Here’s their tagline:
Free and open-source software is good for you and for the world. This is the best Windows software that we know of.
No adware, no spyware, just good software.
On a personal note I tend to discourage the use of warez when a free open source app is available. I discourage stealing in general, but I especially discourage it when there’s a free app that will do the same thing you want FOR FREE.
If everyone just steals all their apps, then the voders will have no need to create new apps, then we’re all fuct. Get the idea.
