Help to update this list with links to the current versions/places to obtain these applications is very welcome, also additional categories.

NOTE: The purpose is NOT a full list of all applications in each category, but rather a list of a few of the best alternatives. If you wish to add a more comprehensive list for a specific category, please create a separate page for that category, and link to it from the category column.
