There's a new, very good site, with lots of information about
scientific and other software packages running under Linux.
There are two fast mirror sites:
In the US http://SAL.KachinaTech.COM
In Europe http://ftp.llp.fu-berlin.de/lsoft/
SAL deserves a very close look, I believe.
SAL defined: SAL (Scientific Applications on Linux) is a
collection of information and links of software that scientists
and engineers will be interested in. The broad coverage on Linux
applications will also benefit the whole Linux/Unix community.
The popularity of SAL has led a new categorizing scheme, a
friendly user interface and a greatly expanded repertoire with
more detailed information. We hope you will enjoy the new SAL!
