FOSS in 2005 - Your expectations?
Okay, so we're at the beginning of a new year and there already are many articles outhere speaking about gnu/linux, free software and open source in 2005, expectations, predictions and analysis.
Thus, i am inviting you to express the same here.. What are your expectations or predictions for freee software, linux and open source in 2005? What are your wishes, what are you looking forward the most when it comes to FOSS? Also, what do you fear the most? Why do you think so?
My general expectations are that the popularity of gnu/linux will continue to grow, even accelerate starting to easily emerge into desktop. I also believe there will be possibly more than few significant public sector switches to FOSS we'll read about in our daily FOSS news.
As fo the biggest fear, it would vry well be enforcing software patents in Europe and halt and drop in Firefox popularity growht (there seem to be some people with such "black thoughts"). :-)
Anyway,, it's your turn.
