Im looking for a linux project to get involved in. I suspect its already started so if anyone knows about it please share - i'd be surprised if i had to start from scratch... Futureproof Linux (as a suggestion) 1) Hardware and Drivers Linux has failed miserably to keep up with the evolving nature of technology. We now have more companies making more variations of every electronic kit - than ever before. So this idea that one driver can serve everybody is outdated and doomed to failure. A truely 'free' os will have a *easy* and *simple* way of swapping out drivers. I want my computers to contain whatever hardware i choose to buy and plug in. So i will need a few files to explain to the OS the capabilities of the hardware and how to optimise its use. 2) Professional Products - an installation file (singular) No more going to the central store for half-finnished abandoned software. I want to see the store front. A proper website with info about the company or person. How serious are they? do they deserve support or funding? If i like their effort i want to download their software and try it. doesnt really matter how, but the current system just sucks. It takes waaaaay too long to find decent software. So many programs are only ever discussed on obscure forums and have to be downloaded as multiple files, and even compiled!!!! 3) Death to the Command Line When i run a program or use a tool, i want to see constantly (all the time) the results (or status, or effect). Maybe graphically, maybe numerically, maybe some other way... i want information displayed on my big fancy monitors, utilising my big fancy graphics cards. I do NOT want a little black box with some text !!!!!!!! Likewise, i want controls. i want to see what i can adjust, the range of the controls, and how they interact with each other. I do NOT want a flashing cursor next to a post-it note of possible commands to type. This insistance of an antiguated inefficient shell tool is just plain ridiculous. Yes there are 1% of 1% of programmers that can operate faster, but honestly 99%(with a million decimal points of 9 recurring) of fans dont actually work for a living. Ever tried editing a video using BASH. So anyone interested in making a *real* contender?
