Free Software Directory:Free software replacements
Team Captain: David Hedlund
Here is a list of popular free software applications that we recommend to replace common proprietary applications. Ceasing to use proprietary appliations is a good way to start migrating to freedom.
We have a separate list for each operating system because some of the free replacements don't run on all the operating system.
Free operating systems
Nonfree operating systems
After you replace the nonfree apps, how about replacing the nonfree system with a free GNU/Linux distribution next? For your freedom's sake.
