Hi all,

A question for you all, one that's been exercising me: where do you find 
out about applications?
Do you read about them on the net or in mags, think it sounds 
interesting, then look it up in synaptic?
If you have a particular need (say, cataloguing pdfs), how would you go 
about finding a suitable app? How would you google, where would you ask?
If after searching, you have a large choice of apps, how would you 
choose between them? Would you test them all? To what sort of depth?
