Software Download Sites (Linux)
 
Everyone can find Linux Distributions at sites like http://distrowatch.com/

but how about Linux open source add-ons, 3rd party apps, etc... :confused:

Thousands are available at sites like http://sourceforge.net/
and http://freshmeat.net/ (Projects by Tag -> Linux)

Typically available as packages or even source (which can be compiled on any distro). :cool:

There's quite a few links to free software programs/web sites at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:...are/categories.

The individual site info section has links to the developer/distributor site and most include instructions on how to compile/install.

A good site for someone setting up ubuntu 9.04 for the first time is: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Jaunty.

Is a pretty long step by step guide with links to the software sites. ATTN: when using this guide don't install "Sopcast Internet TV" or splashy-themes, use the synaptic package manager for those. if any kind of installation problem with this guide open synaptic package manager and just remove the broken packages.
