Re: Role of IxD in Open Source [was: good interface examples for web basedapplications]

Now that's a topic worth discussing.
I've often thought about putting in some time on one of the Open Source
(OS) CMS products, as I believe there is a great deal of functional
value there. With few exceptions, there are significant ID problems
with the OS products (CMS in particular). The main reason CMS comes to
mind is two-fold: 1) there are a lot of OS CMS products on the market
and 2) CMS is something that is valued by our clients.
I think there are two reasons that have prevented us (being my company
and others) from doing this to date : 1) cost (our time is money) and
2) there are so many to choose from.
But then again, the people developing OS software have valuable time as
well. We could argue that their time is less expensive than ours, but
then isn't it relative? It's still valuable to them...
What are your thoughts on why IxD hasn't taken up a space in OS yet?
