So, we’ve not lifted a story from Lifehacker for a while. To make up for it, here’s a handy list of alternative software applications you can run on your machine. They replace, and often surpass, the more familiar names you may be familiar with. They say:

“It may be the year 2008, but a whole lot of sucktacular software still rears its ugly head on PC’s everywhere, even when better-behaved options are freely available. Whether it’s molasses-slow bloatware, shameless adware, anemic default apps, or “Your trial period has expired!” nagware, it’s time to replace stinky Windows software with its superior (but lesser-known) alternative.”

The list includes alternatives to:

  • Adobe
  • AOL instant messenger
  • Internet Explorer
  • Quick Time
  • Norton Anti Virus
  • Media players / downloaders like Limewire, iTunes and Quick Time

Read the full list of applications on Lifehacker here.
