Free Software Sources

. I'll kick this off with my all time favorite, SourceForge. "The world's largest Open Source software development web site."
. No matter what you want to do, you can probably find a free program that will do it at SourceForge.
. Quality of the programs varies widely, but if you pay attention to last revision dates (be wary if it hasn't been updated in a few years or hasn't been updated since it was posted) and the number of downloads (more is usually better), you can skip over the lesser stuff.
. Not sure how they handle malware prevention, but I've never been infected by any of the plethora of stuff I've downloaded.
