I remember a few years ago in this forum someone trying to revive netrek. He had this "entrepreneural" stance, too ambitious in my opinion, never gathered steam as far as i know.

Hi Jared,
I don't know if it was you really, I just recall the posts. Please excuse me if you were the one and I if offended you in any way. The point I was trying to make is that small, focused and incremental steps sometimes work better than a big plan, in the context of open source projects., with few developer time available. I have nothing against commercial software development, in fact that is what I do for a living.
