What do you think is holding Linux/Ubuntu back at the moment?
Just wondering if you think you can outline what it is Ubuntu really needs that will push it further, giving it more of the market and making it a more compelling choice for an end user.
The two I just outlined on my Twitter (not the most professional place to voice opinion I know but hey it's better than nothing) are strong apps within a particular field, such as Photoshop or Dreamweaver, and integration of stronger suites like iLife.
The former I feel will improve as Wine becomes better integrated, and as companies see more of a reason to port their software to Linux. The latter is perhaps the place of Ubuntu or a similar distribution to encourage, as it requires the kind of focus and integration often not associated with Open Source!!
Other things such as ease of use have a tiny way to go, but I believe this will get fixed with gradual development.
What do you think?
