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).

comment How are GUI and User Experience issues, approached by open software developers?
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 ;-)

comment How are GUI and User Experience issues, approached by open software developers?
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.

@rraallvv I dunno which insider look I'm giving. I'm spend at least 50% of my time doing UX stuff. However I also do development and have started and been involved with several OSS projects ;-)

comment Why do checkout processes place payment info last?
Yes - there are token systems but they cost money to run and implement. They're less exploitable than storing the CC numbers - but they still make it much easier for folk to do bad things to your customers if the site gets hacked. The point I was trying to make was that the decision on where to gather payment info isn't a "free" one on the technical/business side ;)
