Sad but true: software startups don’t wanna sell

I came across a nice list of tools and services for lean startups. A lean startup here means more efficient than usual. The tools and services in the list provide all kind of help for the startups: communications, planning, collaboration, marketing, sales, etc. The list seems to be fine at the first glance. I personally use a few services from the top ten: Skype, Google Apps, WordPress, and Microsoft’s DropBox alternative – LiveMesh.
Notably, a web startup darling Basecamp is only on 22nd place. However, it is shocking to find out that there are only 3 CRM and invoice consolidation systems out of the 65 entries in the list. And they don’t even come up high: 18, 39, and 47 place. Obviously, the “efficient startups” are only concerned about communications, version control, UML diagrams, cloud server management, but not sales. Who needs sales if you can spend your time by doing fancy UML?
