Still the Human theme hehe.
But Compiz would be installed by default, metacity and other non-composited window managers would have been done away with in the major distributions years ago. All would be shiny.

That's an interesting vision of the future. Of course, like most other computing predictions, it will either be completely wrong (ie: nothing like that possible, as in 2001: A Space Odyssey, with the vision of HAL), or completely wrong in the other direction (ie: stuff like that being common and around for years). Hopefully it'll be the latter.

I, for one (and a lot of other people, I suppose) prefer to have my data local and not taken hostage at the whim of my ISP and the owner of the "service" I'm subscribed to. And, 300 Mbit connection? Ubiquitous in 8 years? Not bloody likely. The author of that article is suffering from the "American metropolis syndrome" - that is, assuming modern technology is as available in the other 99.7% of the world as it is where he lives.
