What is your favorite free software resource?
 
God, that sounds like a spam title, doesn't it?

Anyhow, a different thread is talking about the best free anti-virus apps, so I thought I would expand it to discuss favorite sites for [u]finding[/u] free software. A couple of guidelines:[list=1][*]I am talking [b]only[/b] about software that the [b]author[/b] [u]intended[/u] to be free - NOT cracks/warez/bootlegs/etc.[*]I am not talking about sites like Download.com and "get-ur-free-software-here.com" I envision this as being a meta-list of discussion forums where other users have listed their favorite software.[/list]For example, here are my two favorites:[list][*][url="http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Freeware_replacements_for_common_commercial_apps-t3616.html"]Bleeping Computer - Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps[/url][*][url="http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=355128"]AVS Forum - Free killer apps for your HTPC...[/url][/list]Anyone have a good one?

sourceforge.net is awesome when it comes to open source software. everytime i need something that i'd normally have to buy, I hit sourceforge first.

[url]http://sourceforge.net[/url] - anything and everything open source (graphicss programs, 3d modeling programs, 3d engines, utilities and apps of all kinds).

I agree too. Sourceforge rocks. In addition to that, they host "questionable" apps that allow you to burn/rip DVDs and more.

I usually just use download.com.
