Subject:   Why reinvent the wheel?

What I don't understand is...if the overwhleming majority of us are already using the excellent apps that come with a Mac to do these jobs, why mess with generally inferior OSS apps to do the same? What I would find really interesting is some information on OSS apps that do something unique for which we *don't* already have an Apple or commercial app that does the job better. I'm sure there are many OSS tools that fit this description. (eg: Platypus - http://www.sveinbjorn.org/platypus)
