...Linux on the Desktop? :)

But seriously, there is probably some kind of revolutionary but unsexy improvement to medical equipment or something along those lines that will never reach the top of social media. I don't know anything about such fields so I'm just gonna do some tunnel visioning and think about what would be revolutionary to me.

Somewhere there is a team working on the "real" solution to the "put my code on the internet and run it" problem. Not Kubernetes and not Heroku. Something that "just works" and will solve the programming devops problem for simple projects for good. It will be self-hosted and all you have to do to scale it is pull the slider or something. And no, that is not what Kubernetes is. I said simple! That'd be pretty good.
