>So if they're boring to use, how is Linux going to get into a role where
serious development is being carried on? Yes I know Linux has every
compiler under the sun running on it (bar probably MSVC's one which doesn't
count as a real compiler anyway) but if Linux is looking to be used as a
basis for large scale development projects then there have to be good
quality modelling tools out there to use on it. Maybe one of the
commercial houses will port their tools over, but it raises the issue that
the most serious disadvantage of ongoing open source development is that it
only provides 'cool apps' while paying lesser regard to the more mundane,
yet useful and highly used ones.
