It's not (just) the clear direction, so much as publishing at least an outline/roadmap so that we can see it. ROL may well have a clear direction, but it's not much use to us if we don't know it.

As someone who works professionally on a very closed OS, as well as uses the very open Linux OS, there are advantages and disadvantages to both: open source is not the panacea it sometimes appears to be, but OTOH it's not all bad either, just so long as there is a specific direction.
