Your average computer user doesn't know what's good or bad, look at all the people who used RISC OS and are now using Windows to do the same things, just badly.

When Red Squirrel was the only project a port to Linux would have happened if the author wanted it. Now it will happen if it's more profitable than whatever they're spending their time on now. 99% of the work needed for VAonLinux has been done already of course by writing VA.

There is no radical progress anymore technology wise, it's how people use computers that's changing fast, internet, email, web, chat programs.

The 3 revolutions of computing: 1. A computer in your home 2. A GUI in your computer in your home 3. The internet in your home

I predict the 4th revolution will be taking them all out of your home and putting them around yourself. Instant access to any information anywhere, videoing your entire life. At that point computers will start to change humans.
