The Office of Telecommunication Services (OTS) of the University of Texas System now supports an archive site for Macintosh freeware and shareware, which can be accessed with both FTP and the World-Wide Web.

ftp://ftp.utexas.edu/pub/mac/
http://wwwhost.ots.utexas.edu/mac/main.html

The archives are maintained by Chris Johnson, former and long-time administrator of the University of Texas at Austin Computation Center's Macintosh archive, microlib/mac, and creator of its WWW interface [And an extremely nice one it is, too. -Adam].

The OTS archives are not an attempt to compete with or substitute for the much more comprehensive collections at Info-Mac and Umich but will continue to grow over time.
