open source software and niche user cases: examples?
I think this could be a good argument for open source for niche software needs/user cases. To summarise, Apple have produced a new version of Final Cut, their video editing program, that is a lot cheaper than the old one but misses out some features that are important for production work flows.

Anyone have other examples of niche software that is open source and that has a major following? Blender?
