According to this article it appears there will be a good sized audience for OpenACS 4. There are some people out there still looking for the "killer web app"

What makes you think that (Open)ACS fits the bill?

The article claims people are looking for more than just simple web serving.
They are looking for web applications.

OpenACS 4 provides a skeleton on which to place web applications and
comes with several fine applications out of the box.  (cms and e-commerce
being obvious ones).  I expect to see more web applications produced for
OpenACS 4 after it's release.  That puts it in a position to compete with the
other web application type platforms with the advantage that you don't get
nickel and dimed to death ($50 for file upload here, $300 for an e-commerce
module there) and that the modules are already designed to work together.
