There are two types of changes:

Your mindset
Actual improvements

For people using Linux many years, they have seen these improvements all the time, so the question is, where is the critical turning point? For new users, there's the steep revolution, followed by ups and downs.

I think there is a big change, but it happened in 2007 or early 2008.
I had to compile drivers and such back then, it kind of changed two-three years ago.
Since, Linux has been steadily improving, but no major breakthroughs.

I think it's a good moment to work on stability and standards and not race into the gui game, which can open another round of issues and ups and downs. Unit, Wayland, Gnome 3 - completely bling bling and unnecessary.

Gimme 10 years solid support, please.

Cheers,
Dedoimedo
