Open Source Software Download Tip

I have been using more and more open source software both at home and work… Python, Aptana, WinRar, VideoLan to name just a few, and one thing that I noticed is that when I search for these tools to download there are a lot of fake websites that either download not what you are after, or tag on other junk during the install process.  The trick that I have been using to get around these is to search for the tool on wikipedia which for me has always linked me to the organization, that is a site where the software originated from.  I have been sharing this with a few people and they seem to think it is a novel idea, so I thought I would share as an attempt to blog more often.
