> I could say a lot of things here, but I won’t get into the details. What’s really important is this: I’m not proud to be a Mozillian anymore.

Working in a small department as one of the few people dealing with server software, I rarely actually TALK to people about technology. Because of that, I'm always self conscious about whether or not I'm pronouncing things correctly. Kubernetes? Is that "koo-ber-neets?", or "kub-er-nets?", or "koo-ber-net-es?" I don't know. I'm going to sound like an idiot.

I don't know if "Predictions" articles are more fun looking forward at what might be, or looking back at how badly the future was predicted.
"5 Linux Predictions for 2019 - OMG! Ubuntu!"
Have things you'd like to add or think that some items on their list don't really matter?
