    While on the surface it may appear to be some wisdom in your words they are in fact nothing more then flamebait. Excellent applications are arising that surpass the functionalities of their original counterparts.

    Gnumeric – Appears to be an Excel clone. Great job it does. However, the addition of several accounting and financial functions along with the complete compatability with all Excel functions make it better. It is more stable, uses up less memory, works faster, and even displays summation totals at the bottom corner of the screen (something I seriously wished Excel would do as it is very handy in complex spreadsheets).

    Evolution – Appears to be an Outlook clone. What can I say other then outlook is great? Evolution is better however in that they have a far superior search functionality and they even have “vfolders” which are virtual folders and tremedously useful.

    Galeon – Appears to be a … well a clone of nothing. True innovation at work. In fact, it is everyone else who has started copying ideas that the galeon developers came up with (most without much stability success I might add). This product is super duper fast, uses up very little memory, stable as crap, and even has crash recovery which is the most advanced thing I’ve seen in any browser (in case you decide to turn off the power to your computer without closing down the browser).

    There are others but these are the 3 completed projects and admittedly the frequency of great products is very slow but there is innovation and advancement being made.
