You cut his link to plan9; maybe that's it.

Which is going to be so "up-to-date" that it can't use "anachronisms" like
multi-seat, which are widely and currently in use.  In fact, the use of
multi-seat is growing.


Decentralized computing. Sun's "the network is the computer" was an
early experiment with this idea, Plan 9 was another. Is it easy? Nobody
said it would be easy.

As for what is growing, cloud computing, so they can look at our data
and keep us safe.

The app store concept is growning, and the "unified solution" is coming
to distro near you, with TC/DRM as added bonus. Don't forget that OS-X
is built on FOSS, blazing the trail.

Centralized computing, centralized development, helpless users, mo' money. Even Wall Street gets it.
