Cool Linux Programs List


Hey,

It's been a while since I've been on linux so I am looking for a site that will give me a list of cool linux applications that are available. Also a blog that posts updates on things that are upcoming would be nice too.

Cheers

How about right here.....

Seriously, what exactly are you looking for? Linux applications are all over the place. One common resource is sourceforge.net
