Ethical.net is described as 'We’re a not-for-profit project building a collaborative, online directory of ethical companies of all kinds'. There are more than 10 alternatives to Ethical.net, not only websites but also apps for Mac, Windows and Linux. The best alternative is AlternativeTo, which is free. Other great sites and apps similar to Ethical.net are PRISM Break (Free, Open Source), Free Software Directory (Free, Open Source), Libre Projects (Free, Open Source) and Open Source Software Directory (Free).
AlternativeTo let you find new Windows, Mac, Linux, online and mobile software based on applications you already know instead of useless categories. AlternativeTo is a new approach to finding good software.
The aim of the Open Source Software Directory is to list the best and most promising open source software available on the Internet. The focus is on end-user programs for home users, and small and medium businesses.
When I first switched to Linux from Windows, one problem I had was finding good programs to accomplish some of the same tasks I was already doing. I knew there were plenty out there, but I didnt know how to find them. Linux App Finder was an idea that developed out of my search.
The goal of the Linux Alternative Project is to provide an informational website available to all Linux users. It is currently in beta form and the database will be periodically updated with Windows software and the Linux equivalents and alternatives.
