Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Perhaps most likely to raise some eyebrows is that Ubuntu 13.04 will let users purchase music or apps directly from the desktop Dash, without having to open a browser or a separate client." That's going to go down well.

That is what in all my years of software development I have come to realize.

Open source as business is only possible when you can make services or hardware on top of it.

Most ways open source companies are doing business are not possible in the domestic market of the desktop environments.

Or when your business is creating or tailoring software and not distribution.

But maybe you had that as part of services since this is, as the word tailoring already hints at, a form of service like people having a tailor create new or change existing clothing to fit exactly the specs (measurements) of the customers
