Este artigo questiona se o calcanhar de aquiles do software livre seria a falta de contribuições úteis da comunidade, e dá como exemplo o concurso de templates do OpenOffice.org, que, até agora, foi um fracasso melancólico.

Ao invés de enviar cartas iradas ao jornalista, será que podemos demonstrar que ele está errado, enviando nossas próprias contribuições para o projeto?

Eu já fiz a minha.

Open Office is one of the most popular open source projects around. It has about 50 million users, the software supports dozens of languages, and it replicates (free) all the major functions of Microsoft Office.

But since announcing its contest for templates and clipart the reaction has been one of crickets chirping.

Gerry Singleton, co-leader of the project's documentation project, says he's looking to extend the entry deadline, maybe to November 1.

"We're looking for something that does something useful, like a family budget. Or checkbook reconciliation. We don't have that. There are bits and pieces around, but no one has done one that's complete."
