Bah. zero vision, zero future.

Even though he's my connational, I am disappointed. And frankly, I don't see a future for Linux. Linux is going nowhere. Adopting NUMA? That's old news. Having real plug-and-play? That's old news (look at BeOS or MacOS - oh, right, you don't look around). And even though I use Linux for development, I realized it's just another UNIX. I could as well use Unixware, Solaris for Intel or *BSD. Same thing. I really don't see Linux being relevant, in 5 years from now. With such a spearhead, it won't ever make it to the masses, and it's equally worrying that it's only doing catch-up to the other server OS. Well, we are in a recession. If Linux doesn't make good inroads in the server market, it never will.
