Red Hat CEO At LinuxCon: I Have No Idea What’s Next

Quote:
Jim Whitehurst, CEO of Red Hat, just delivered a terrific opening keynote presentation for LinuxCon. Whitehurst isn’t just a businessman, he’s also a geek. He used Linux and open source before joining Red Hat, and the opportunity to be CEO of the world’s most successful open source company was a dream come true for him. After a quick summary of some of the major milestones Linux has seen over the last twenty years, he jumped into the heart of his keynote: what’s next? Whitehurst wasted no time in answering this question: “I have no idea.”

how about native support for widely used apps from windows and OSX?
Maybe if they can settle on one kernel and then focus on the applications instead of updating the kernel over and over and over, maybe the "new users" would be more inclined to stick with linux.
I am a new OSX user due to my new job and all I see is another Linux distro... except Apple provides thorough testing and support for all the applications.
I know that would mean a lot of cooperation from developers, but man, it would be TRUE alternative to Windows and OSX...
