"We are proud to welcome AppWatch, featuring Free Software and Open Source downloads, to the ZDNet/CNet family."
"AppWatch stands out for two reasons. First, it tracks only currently maintained Free Software and Open Source software projects. You can depend on the fact that if you find it at AppWatch, the package is actively maintained and popular with many users. There are no bait-and-switch commercial demos, and alpha- and beta versions are clearly labeled as such."
"Secondly, AppWatch works like a search engine spider to detect new versions of software minutes after they are released. For that reason, you'll almost always see software announcements first at appwatch.zdnet.com."
