Just for fun, my tech predictions. As you see I think Mint will have a good year:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think that Ubuntu will make it commercially because of game developers interest. Linux Mint will gain even more popularity with people that want a traditional desktop and Cinnamon will continue to be refined. Gnome Shell will take on more of what the users actually want but will continue to struggle for a while. More of the old familiar distros will be discontinued because they can not compete with the larger funded distros new features.

Just my opinions and not to be taken too seriously. :)

Linux will start to overtake Apple in terms of market share because of the popularity of Android and because of all the people running away from Windows 8.
The Gnome-devs will finally start to actually listen to people and add functionality which makes them happy. That, or Gnome dies out. LXDE will get overtaken by a WM like Enlightenment.
Ubuntu will have transformed in to Microsoft-2 by the end of the year, while somewhere random in the Pacific, someone will create the ultimate computer which runs on water and then use it to hack in to the Earth's Inner Computer.

Oh, and Microsoft will get attacked by Siri.
This is blue. And this is my blog about technology and stuff.

I am very interested to see what gaming does for Ubuntu and Mint as well.
I agree some distros are going to disappear, I suspect some smaller distros will fall by the wayside next year.

Yes, Siri will likely lead the machines in a revolt against mankind in 2013 :lol:
