Good products know how to sell themselves to new users. Most FOSS projects seem to only know how to sell themselves to existing users.
... except the ones that just alienate their existing users and lead to projects like Cinnamon. And also have no net gain in users because they're still also bad at selling themselves to new users.
Good technology means nothing. Bad technology that everybody knows about is going to be used far more often than good technology that nobody knows about.
