This is a list of some of the sites that make some of the software that I use. Some of these programs I don't have, but friends recommended them. Some I don't have, but I really wish that I did, and I plan to get them as soon as the budget will allow it.
Software companies being what they are, this list is incomplete; and some of these may belong to another company now. But in those cases, the sale should be recent enough that you should be able to find the new company listed on the site for the old one.
All of these will open in a new window, just to make it easier to check them all out! (And some have downloadable demos!)
