Software Homepages

Categorized links to the homepages of software that runs under Linux. Descriptions in double quotes (") were provided by the submitter (not me) or were taken right from the linked web site.

Linux Software Lists

These are sites that list software by category that runs under Linux. These link to the software's homepage or a file archive. For NLL's list of software homepages, and for off-site homepage lists of a single type of software, see the homepages section above.
