Tell me. What killer app, what "must have" will any new OS bring that

OS starts off with 0% of the market share, while the others, 100 %.
How about something that actually did .NET out of the box?
Gates wishes he could port the PalmOS, but can't because they are mired
in the Windows Everywhere strategy. Likewise, IBM (and Apple) couldn't
or wouldn't accept the open architecture model, and so their fortunes
fell (or fell short). Microsoft will eventually fail because the
Internet makes the OS a commodity, and one day Windows won't matter
