I've noticed I fairly often agree w/ the rankings from this (at least when they show up in my search results). more accurate than I would've expected

Sage: Open Source Mathematics Software: You don't really think that Sage has failed, do you?
> P.S. You don't _really_ think that Sage has failed, do you?

After almost exactly 10 years of working on the Sage project, I absolutely do think it has failed to accomplish the stated goal of the mission statement: "Create a viable free open source alternative to Magma, Maple, Mathematica and Matlab.".     When it was only a few years into the project, it was really hard to evaluate progress against such a lofty mission statement.  However, after 10 years, it's clear to me that not only have we not got there, we are not going to ever get there before I retire.   And that's definitely a failure.

You don't work in the software industry.

...

So what's the software industry, and how do we differ from it?

Well, the software industry is what you learn about in school, and it's what you probably did at your previous company. The software industry produces software that runs on customers' machines — that is, software intended to run on a machine over which you have no control.

So it includes pretty much everything that Microsoft does: Windows and every application you download for it, including your browser.

It also includes everything that runs in the browser, including Flash applications, Java applets, and plug-ins like Adobe's Acrobat Reader. Their deployment model is a little different from the "classic" deployment models, but it's still software that you package up and release to some unknown client box.

Servware

Our industry is so different from the software industry, and it's so important to draw a clear distinction, that it needs a new name. I'll call it Servware for now, lacking anything better. Hardware, firmware, software, servware. It fits well enough.

Servware is stuff that lives on your own servers. I call it "stuff" advisedly, since it's more than just software; it includes configuration, monitoring systems, data, documentation, and everything else you've got there, all acting in concert to produce some observable user experience on the other side of a network connection.

The Next Generation of Software Stacks | StackShare
most interesting part to me:
GECS have a clear bias towards certain types of applications and services as well. These preferences are particularly apparent in the analytics stack. Tools typically aimed primarily at marketing teams—tools like Crazy Egg, Optimizely, and Google Analytics, the most popular tool on Stackshare—are extremely unpopular among GECS. These services are being replaced by tools that are aimed a serving both marketing and analytics teams. Segment, Mixpanel, Heap, and Amplitude, which provide flexible access to raw data, are well-represented among GECS, suggesting that these companies are looking to understand user behavior beyond clicks and page views.
