It's heavily used internally by Firefox/Mozilla and related projects,
and the Chandler PIM is supposed to store all it's data internally as RDF

one area I'm mildly surprised hasn't seen more action in terms of RDF
is ERP/CRM for small to medium businesses and project management software
that let's you describe the resources in play using RDF so that you
can extract and infer assertions about availability and dependencies.
I guess interoperability isn't that important to most of the players
in that space yet (even if the customers want it).
