Predictions 2019-1

  • Microsoft will swap their existing Kernel with an Open Source Linux Kernel (as they already work on a lot of Subsystem improvements https://github.com/microsoft/WSL2-Linux-Kernel)
  • Podcasts will have an even bigger revival, but the openness will suffer by monetisation – this can already be seen with closed systems like Spotify or Luminary
  • RSS will probably die out more and more due to Podcasts being moved into walled systems
  • Apple will close down their system to an extent where it will not allow any changes and could loose the favour of the development community
