Great article, thanks.
Maybe a nice 9th Project would be ev3dev. Open Source your LEGO Mindstorms.

This is a Debian Linux-based operating system that runs on several LEGO® MINDSTORMS compatible platforms including the LEGO® MINDSTORMS EV3 and Raspberry Pi-powered BrickPi.

Just like you can take apart your LEGO® models and build something completely different, we have reversed-engineered the EV3 and created a new software platform for programming your robots.

Enjoy reading and playing!

Thanks for this interesting overview.
I (as non-IT technician) like Zarafa as email client. I am curious if you know this open source product and if so is there a reason why you did not mention it in this Top 5?
Looking forward to your reply.
