I don't think we should aim at the general user, because not only
nebulous, it has all of those same problems.
That happens to be what every successful desktop (and mobile) OS have
They built a system that is generally useful, they don't really care
whether you are a developer, graphics designer, gamer or whatever.
If the operating system works for the general user case it works for
pretty much everything else (it is just a matter of installing the
right applications / tools).
An operating system designed for a specific user type is doomed to end
up being a niche OS.
