A new Business: Free Software
I see that Giving the software and OS for free and dispensing tech support and consulting for a fee as being a very good way for a company to prosper in the tech industry.
But, I have a suspicion that this will not be in the interest of the customer in the long-run. Companies who develop the software will deliberately keep their product complicated just enough so that the inexperienced, which is most people, will need them to provide their support. What we will get is an OS that is less popular with the masses than the Microsoft's OSs. And that would be a shame.
