Perhaps, it would be better to also have the open source alternatives 
when presenting the 3rd party software. This way, even those who do not 
know the open source alternatives will get some exposure to free software.

For example, Chrome page can show chromium, firefox, midori, etc. Adobe 
repositories page for flash and adobe reader can show gnash and evince, 
xpdf, etc.
