1 Goals

1.1 Individual projects

1.2 Comparison table

I have transferred most of the table from this[1] thread here into wiki markup. It needs to be completed and inserted. I think that links to subheads in this article or links to the websites of these projects would be excellent in the first column, so I will do that as soon as we decide where we shall link.

I left out the "approach" column because I think it is best we just link to a more thorough explanation, otherwise the table will become rather messy.
