A Paris design firm recently made waves when it released its concept for a sleek, solar paneled, windowless passenger jet. Before that, Airbus proposed eschewing windows and building its cabins out of transparent polymers. Now, the Center for Process Innovation has floated its own windowless plane concept, and it's attracting plenty of headlines, too.

Seriously, what do people want? That nothing must be using Linux specific kernel features ever, because that is unfair to other OS's?

When I use gimp, pidgin, geany etc on a Windows desktop, it's because they consistently work well with a thin Gtk+ shim over Win32. That's without installing a Linux compatibility layer like cygwin.

If in future one has to install some cygwin-systemd abomination just to run Gimp, then free software will have lost a fan.

Whoever dies with the most toys wins.
