'Mark Shuttleworth, founder and CEO of Canonical, summed it in a few
words: "I think the bigger challenge has been that we haven't invented
anything in the Linux that was like deeply, powerfully ahead of its
time." He also said that "if in the free software community we only
allow ourselves to talk about things that look like something that
already exists, then we're sort of defining ourselves as a series of
forks and fragmentations." He added that it seems the desktop Linux
people want to be angry at something. We wanted to do amazing things
with Unity but the community won't let us do it, so here we are. He
also commended Google folks for what they have built for Chrome OS.'

Hmm... Multiple virtual desktops, natively supported Windows, finally
available with Windows 10 (though terrible to use!). Even fvwm2 in
1998 or 1999 was better than Windows' current implementation...
Talking about something amazing...
