Only the real life requirement drives any good project.. If we see most
of the open source projects, they are initially done for a specific
requirement for the real life.
The main reason why there is not much of open source projects is that
those who have technical knowledge is not connected with those who need
a software for their opearations..
Also, there has been no major discussion in this group (as far as i have
known) so far on any ideas to start the open source project.
I personally have lot of ideas which can be started as an open source
projects.. but where is the platform to discuss all those.. only when
we discuss we can create a workable model and then implement those.
