The following article represents only a small fraction of the
software I discovered. However, it also represents the greater part
of the viable software that I found. SF lists projects that are at
various stages of development, including those at the "idea" stage.
Fortunately there's no need to waste time looking at file listings
- SF nicely indicates activity in a project's files base, and a
quick glance at the activity metrics will tell the tale of the
project's liveliness. As a matter of fact, the majority of projects
I investigated had no files uploaded yet to the public files areas
or to CVS/SVN repositories. Ideas are still easier to make than
plans, plans are easier to make than to realize, and realization is
still the result of long and often intense labor. Nevertheless, I
don't bemoan this situation, I'm happy to see what ambitions and
concepts are out there. Indeed, some of the projects I discovered
were truly "out there", but in this article I've focused on three
of the most practical and completely developed productions. Two of
these projects were unknown to me until I found them on SF, and one
is a long-standing projects with a strong history of development
that I simply hadn't got around to profiling."
