Alternativeto.net Best website to find alternatives to Windows, Mac, Linux, online and mobile software

AlternativeTo let's you find new Windows, Mac, Linux, online and mobile software based on applications you already know instead of useless categories. AlternativeTo is a new approach to finding good software. Search what application you want to replace and alternativeto.net will give you suggestions on great alternatives!

Users can search the site to, for instance, find better alternatives to an application they are using or previously have used, or free alternatives, perhaps choosing a free web application ( e.g., cloud computing) which does not require any installation and can be accessed from any browser.

http://alternativeto.net

Instead of listing thousands of more or less crappy applications in a category, we make each application into a category. Think of it like forever evolving blog posts about good alternatives to the software that you're not satisfied with.

AlternativeTo.net allows anyone to register and suggest new alternatives, or to update the information held about existing entries. Suggestions and alterations are reviewed before being made publicly visible. Registration can be done via Facebook Connect or OpenID, both of which obviate the need to create a new password for the site
Tweets from anyone mentioning particular pieces of software are also pulled in dynamically from Twitter. Each application has an RSS feed for notifying users of newly listed alternatives to that application. After a user has clicked the Like button next to an application, they are offered the opportunity to tell their friends on Facebook or their followers on Twitter that they liked it, and the tweet or post can be customized.

The site also has a forum. For software developers, a JSON API is available
