These will be reviews not of individual applications, but of types of applications. We want to offer information on the history of the given type of software, which apps are the old favorites, which are under the most active development, how all the pieces fit together, etc., so that people know how to get started with the topic at hand.
Imagine that you're looking at "Internet :: Log Analysis" for the first time, and everything looks equally good (or bad) to you, or that a friend stopped you in the hallway and said "I just started using Linux and know nothing about Unix word processors. What do I need to know?" These are the sorts of problems we hope to alleviate with a little helpful advice from experts.
Our first review is on the topic of financial software, and is by Christopher Browne, the man whose name pops up when you type "Linux finance" into Google's search box. After today, anyone who finds her way to one of our financial categories will find a link to his review and your comments on it. I hope you'll find this helpful.
There are 298 categories to go, so I'll welcome your help in finding qualified people to review them. Start at http://freshmeat.net/browse/, see if anyone leaps to mind as the obvious person to do a review, and let me know.
Thanks, and enjoy.
