+1 to that.  Cloud computing has become more popular (Joli Os, 
Peppermint OS, Chrome book OS, Firefox OS, etc..)

I might help to implement a way to access compressed files, like 
LiveCD's do with the squashfs, as a way to bundle things for quicker 
downloading and make things smaller for the lower end markets, and 
easier for people in restricted countries to have more tools in limited 
space, and of course countries where internet is hard to get to, or 
expensive :)

Future OS will build off of current things, it is unlikely that they 
will become so radically different that a complete rewrite will be 
necessary for a long while.
Of course this is all just my opinion anyhow.
