Maybe with the rise of a standards compliant compiler we'll see open source developers more attuned to writing their code according to those standards rather than using nasty hacks and work arounds.

GCC is standard-compliant if you ask it to be so ;) Using command lines like this one http://c-faq.com/resources/fn86.html , it can be as pedantic and standard-compliant as possible (and report errors better)

The big thing I'm looking for, along side better hardware support, is tickless kernel support as to improve the over all battery life/power management.

Well, according to Phoronix's results, a tickless kernel alone won't magically improve power management, it just makes the way for future power management improvements (like pausing some daemons more or less aggressively when their presence is not absolutely necessary) : http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=651&num=1
