Re(1): wrong-headed replacement of proprietary apps

Huh, proof that open source development isn't faster than corporate, proprietary development. If they're using the same data, why is it that Google was able to come up with Google Earth, but no one in the open source movement did? And, now that Google Earth's been around a couple of years, we have a crappy Johnny-come-lately that doesn't come close to the same level of functionality, and never will. But, but, but, but, open source development is faster! Oh, is that the key? This software, which has a small fraction of the functionality, is faster? Well, DUH! I could make my car twice as fast if I stripped all of the body panels off, too.

Here's a clue guys: bang the rocks together...
