Editorial Being the best doesn't always mean being the most popular. We all know of many inferior products that are immensely, sometimes perplexingly, popular. However, this does not mean that one must forsake the pursuit of excellence when pursuing a broad market share. As proponents of open source software, it should not be beneath us to pursue popularity or to look to proprietary developers as examples. And by following the right examples, we can help spread the usage of open source software without sacrificing the goal of software excellence, says NewsForge.

Skype, MSN6 (compared to other IM's), MSOffice owns OOo outright, Linux UI still is unbearable.

OSS still has some areas it need to learn a few things from.
But Firefox is one of the examples where they've got it right.
