Certain types of software have long had a reputation for being very expensive. As cloud computing has become more popular, many popular software packages have switched to a monthly subscription model rather than charging users a one-time fee. While these subscriptions often look inexpensive on a monthly basis, the fees can really add up over time.

While there are many good reasons to consider open source applications, the ability to avoid or reduce these fees continues to be a primary factor for many users. With that in mind, we've updated our annual list of open source applications that can replace expensive closed source apps.

This year, the list is longer than ever with 100 good choices for enterprises, small businesses and home users. Whenever possible, we've included the price for comparable paid software. Please note that while the open source applications on our list provide the same functionality as the closed source applications they can replace, they generally don't have identical features.

As always, please use the comment section below if you know of additional applications that should be on our list.
