Internet is full of sites to download Windows applications. A clear example is the old and familiar site CNET download.com, which has one of the databases of Windows programs (free of spyware, AdAware and viruses, according to them) that there are larger.
When it comes to Linux systems, one is used to install programs from the official repository, using a graphical package manager (like Synaptic) or a tool from the console (apt-get ). But these repositories toooodos do not have existing programs, and sometimes it is necessary to go out and search for programs on the outside. Fortunately, there are also many websites that allow search applications for Linux, leaving them down a list of some of them. If you know of others, can poster.
IMPORTANT: many of these sites allow you to download the packages in a specific format for some distributions. For example, GetDeb us the ability to download only. Deb (for debian, ubuntu, etc. ..), Rpmfind only allows us to download RMPS (fedora, red hat, suse, mandriva). Eye to louse …
And before desacargar a program, leaving them two recommendations:
1) make sure that they can not install the package manager of the system. This mechanism is always better (or at least, to install all the dependent libraries)
2) Always read the recommendations, and if they can visit the site of the author, the better. There are usually the latest versions and the best indications.
