Poll: Let’s Evaluate Open Source’s Jewels

Thursday here, a slow evening. Time for a new poll. This poll might require you to think a bit extra: it asks you to vote not for your favorite application, but which OSS application, in your opinion, has achieved high standards, performance, features and ease of use when compared to the best of breed of the closed source world. Read more for more explanation and voting.For example, the equivalent of Evolution might be Outlook or Lotus. The equivalent of Mozilla will be IE. The equivalent of OOo would be MS Office. The equivalent of Konqueror might be the Windows Explorer file manager. The equivalent of the Gimp would be Photoshop. Or, it could be what you think it is best today (for example, you might regard Opera better than IE, so you can compare it against it). The point is to single out this open source application that has exceeded and surpassed overall (more than the other OSS apps) its equivelant high-profile closed source application, and vote for it.


In other words it is a lot like “let’s find out open source’s killer application”. I hope it is clear enough. πŸ™‚
