John Clingan's 2005 Predictions
By John Clingan-Oracle on Dec 30, 2004
What is it with annual predictions coming at the end of a year? Why not, say, May 17th? Does anyone hold feet to the fire when predictions go wrong? Like, \*very wrong\*? To get into the act, I have decided to make some end-of-year predictions that I feel confident in (and couldn't fit in 11 words):
- The 4th of July will occur on the 4th of July
- I will spend more on coffee in 2005 than I spend on gas.
- MaryMary will blog.
- I will not win any raffles or door prizes. I'm 1 for 2,000,000,000 lifetime, with the 1 being the bumper "Duke for President" sticker I got from Mary.
- The news media will deliver as much opinion as news
- 2005 will be "The Year of Linux" in some way. After all, so was 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004.
- Senior Moments (in many forms) will continue, but more will be contained by Solaris 10 features such as RBAC, Zones and Process Rights Management. This implies, of course, that Solaris 10 will be released
It's a short list, but I hit the law of diminishing returns before I started :)
Happy New Year!
