We love open source, not just because they offer free software and save us money, but also because the community downright rocks. Here is another reason open source rules from Datamation: “50 Noteworthy New Open Source Apps.” Datamation likes to compile a list of open source apps every once in a while to help its readers be knowledgeable about the latest projects because new ones pop up everyday.

Browse through the list and you will find everything from database tools to Web development, which takes up more than half the list.

We love useful lists here and this is one of the best we have found.
