Alternative To for knowing your options

One of the great difficulties with working on the cheap is that the software your school uses or would like to use is beyond your budget. While there are many places to find which Mac or Linux based program can replace a Windows program, there are not many sites that provide lists of alternative programs on the same OS. does just that. lets you click on a program you use or might want to use to see what other programs do the same thing. The site is still quite basic, but given the lack of alternatives, this site is a lot better than nothing.
If anyone knows of better sites, please put them into the comments area.

GREAT SITE! Basic it may be, but I appreciate the way they are helping Free/Open-Source Software get out there and showing people that there are alternatives to the big budget applications. I was trying to do the same thing on some of my pages... they have definitely done a better job.
