Reading all the great posts we got on my last note about Apple, I would like to offer the open source community a New Year's Resolution.

Simplicity.

By that I mean a Linux distro that includes all the common office applications you could want, which loads simply and boots immediately, along with a GUI.

All these things exist. We have great office applications, we have stable OS distros, we have tools for letting people use their existing Windows apps in the Linux environment. We have GUIs out the ying-yang.

It's simply a matter of making some choices and pulling all this together with attractive packaging, sound marketing, and real customer support that scales.

Will 2005 be the year when Linux finally puts it all together? And which company do you think is most likely to accomplish the feat? I'm guessing it will be IBM.
