Dabby Faught of Tejas Consulting has just launched what he calls Open Testware Reviews at http://tejasconsulting.com/open-testware/

I believe this will be an invaluable source that delivers in-depth reviews and surveys of freeware test tools. Follow the link to see a sample issue covering the ALLPAIRS tool and a survey of defect tracking tools.

It is a subscription-based service but moderately priced, costing less than many magazine subscriptions.
