There is a small genre of posts around re-inventing the interfaces of popular open source software; I thought I’d collect some of them for future reference:
- Firefox: 0.1 release notes
- Visual Editor: first blog post I can find (though I’m sure there are many emails), Economist
The first two (Drupal, WordPress) are particularly strong examples of the genre because they directly grapple with the difficulty of change for open source projects. I’m sure that early Firefox and VE discussions also did that, but I can’t find them easily – pointers welcome.
Other suggestions welcome in comments.
