Ok so my take on it is this: Apple without Jobs is stale/boring/useless. They were going in a bad direction when they axed the professional lines, and now that they've completely ditched the professional market there's nothing interesting there. They used to be a media powerhouse, now it's a glorified browser machine. Yuck. Windows is still doing it's boring old thing of plodding along as an annoying mess with an interface you're stuck with and no access to the guts. Linux has become more useful as an entertainment system, but still pretty horrid for media creation. Recent bright spots include Krita, and the video editing stack which seems to finally be getting somewhere. We still need an equivalent to the video compositing features of Quartz on the Mac.Now to the wider tech space. VR is exciting but this insane focus on performance over content is slowly killing it. What's needed is something like X-Wing Alliance or Freespace 2 to gain VR support so that the VR platform has something compelling which isn't over in 30 seconds going for it. On the Open source gaming front it's better than ever with Unity/Unreal 4/Cryengine all being open source but more can be done. Tools Tools Tools is the name of the game, we need more modellers, more editors etc.Microsoft/Mac are the problem but Linux seems to be holding its own and improving compared to those two platforms.
