But seriously... That's actually kind of true.
I want more focus on GNU/Hurd (and I'm serious), because that's a very solid OS to stand on for an unlimited amount of years. It's the best, yet unfinnished, *NIX out there.
And then they should realize a couple of things, for example:
-Standard code libraries, filled with awesomeness, with a Java wrapper on top (so that software will run for eternity);
-Versioning, and only major version jumps remain supported;
-Digital office, done serious;
-OpenGL replacement graphics lib (with the lowest level access support, while still abstracting hardware) for games;
-Standard API's for each new sort of input device (camera, controller (hide HID and DirectInput), accelerometer, etc.);
-Some badass internet protocols;
-Big ass developper manual;
-Downloadable PDF user manual.
Then they should keep the religious stuff behind the curtains. Done.
PS: And the UI needs to be revolutionary; touch&mouse-based graphical commandline. No typing. Having a structured canvas for your tasks, done like Microsoft Project diagrams.
