The future of open source? Better UX

Each year, my favorite open source software survey asks “Where is the future of open source taking us?” I like to try to think far into the future. Not next year or the next five, but where can the horizon of open source and its unique mix of collaborative ideals and communal practices take us?

One such “out there” aspect of open source, that I think will eventually come to fruition, is that of UX.
