"What has my desktop OS done for me lately? [...] they also became boring [...] Solution: Try harder" - An OS shouldn't be an entertainment show.


Yeah, that was only missing some line about how desktop OSes have "jumped the shark." Next thing you know, we'll be seeing OS reviews by Stacy London.

Conferences usually host a number of really nice ideas, a few of which will eventually prove to be usable (just look around on the web, ideas never stop coming).


Or CES. We've been hearing predictions of the "death of the desktop" for, what, 15 years now?
