This section of The MSBC Site is intended as a directory of products that replace similar items from Microsoft. We have attempted to make this listing as complete as humanly possible, but of course there are more alternatives than we could ever list here. The software and hardware products in this directory are for multiple platforms and will run on a variety of operating systems and computer types. (Some listed here will even run on Windows, for anyone seeking to replace Microsoft applications without changing operating systems.) If you know of an Alternative that should be here but isn't, please feel free to use our Submissions page.
