Linux Lately, we've all read a lot of articles about desktop Linux - so many that it's getting hard to tell them apart. One says "Why Linux Sucks," the next "My Success With Linux." Even Michael Robertson of Lindows.com joined the fun with his "Why Desktop Linux Sucks, Today." But very few people have proposed anything radical, and I believe that's what's needed to take GNU/Linux to the next level.

ftp is dead

you write "throttled public FTP servers and also from some sort of contributor/buyer FTP servers". if we are evolving then let's do away with ftp. it seems so insecure. we need a well thought out and maintained, as secure as possible, mechanism for verifying the file and the identity of the server. what about using webdav ?
