Do you ever chafe against the limitations of your OS, disappointed to find out that other trendy OSen are no better? Well, that's how I feel and I've written an article thoroughly summarizing the vast gulf between what modern day OSen such as Windows, Linux and MacOS/BSD presently do and where we really ought to be by now, based upon solid industry needs and customer expectations I have observed. I welcome your input on the matter too. I fully believe that even those of us shy of the skill or spare cycles to contribute code can still influence an industry with our well stated, unique perspective on the matter.
