That's what I'm using. I tried them all, and ended up with Gpredict as my personal favorite. It was however not based on
the pure fact that it was open source but simply that it fits my working style best. The fact that it's code is open and I can 
contribute to it, is a big benefit.

Not that many because it's like you said not an easy thing to do but also it's not something where you can address a huge user base.
