Trying to get back into open source development


Hello r/linux,

I was once an active open source software developer but I’ve been inactive the last couple of years because of college and burnout. I am desperately trying to start again but I don’t have any interesting ideas. inb4 “contribute to existing software instead” – I plan to do that as well. My wish is to start a project that would mainly develop desktop Linux software as that is the field I have the most experience in. The software would, of course, be open source.

So my question is: Is there some kind of software you would like to see? Something that is not available on linux but not terribly complicated (dont ask for adobe suite alternatives heh). Something that exists that you believe deserves another, perhaps a more modern take. Perhaps you have an original idea but no way to realize it.

I would appreciate any suggestions.
