I think one thing about Linux in general is there's isn't enough
funding for the developers to pursue innovations. Since it's very
decentralized, it's all about meritocracy that depends on developer's
free time and resources. Example, honestly for me as a developer, if
I'm given enough resources to start with, and being paid enough for my
parents not to kick me from my house pursuing my interest full-time,
dude I'll be bombarding Linux with many innovations, working with
Linux and open source is dream job provided that you're paid, given
that many features are still missing, there's so many things that you
can still contribute. Plus web-apps integration and Linux, it will
totally be different. Just my 2 cents.
