"free, powerful and useful" does not describe any viable consumer OS
at the moment.
At point, the only consumer OSes really worth considering (more than
7.5% market share) are Windows and Mac OS X.
If you are trying to apply "free, powerful and useful" to Windows, you
need your head examined.
Mac OS X... is an abomination. A design (look and feel) that sucks
using a interface toolkit (Cocoa) that sucks written in a language
(Objective-C) that sucks.

And sadly, it seems no matter what you do, it can' t get any better,
because all OSes suck, some just suck less than others.
