In the News This 24/7 Wall Street article displays three common media ailments: hyperbole, a love for top ten lists, and an obsession with December predictions for the coming year (which off course OSNews is obviously also falling victim to), and there are some predictable losers on this list (Blockbuster Video, anyone?). I thought it would be an interesting topic for OSNews because three of the companies/brands are quite familiar to us: Palm, Motorola, and Sun Microsystems.

I predict that in 2010 nouveau will displace the nvidia binary driver as the driver of choice for nvidia cards on linux. I predict that in 2010 wine's game compatability will near 100% for new games being released as the console market has the pc market in its death grip. Until games start coming out with DirectX 11 support wine is going to continue to support most pc games that people will want to play on it. (I just finished Modern Warfare 2 last week in wine!). I predict that IF Valve do bring steam and source engine to linux we will start to see a surge in native ports to the platform. That said I mainly look forward to continued wine compatability and hardware driver improvements.
