@JonW Since I was most of the way through writing an answer I disagree ;-)

comment What is the best way to calculate how long a UX design task will take?
I disagree with @JonW. It is a UX question. Because the solutions to estimation problems - especially in a agile context - are specific to the domain. And this is a common problem for UX folk in agile contexts.

comment How are GUI and User Experience issues, approached by open software developers?
@rraallvv As to ways to approach it. I think a lot of the problems are the cultural ones - and that's beginning to change. I'm seeing more dev folk actively value and learn about UX stuff. I'm seeing more UX folk work in more effective incremental ways (the Lean UX folk for example).

The thing is they have different goals XCode is a specifically targeted at MacOS/iOS + Objective C. Eclipse is a generic IDE aimed at multiple languages and platforms. It's not out-of-the-box ready for Android dev since most people don't use it for Android dev ;-)

I'd actually disagree with the initial part. OSS is just as much about new projects as improvements. The non-OSS world is just as much about incremental product improvement as it is new projects.
