Sorry, I dont' have the capabilities to see what will be the future 
technologies. And I think neither do you. I consider it as likely that we will 
have a GUI less future, due to emerging technologies which I had already 
listed in another mail to show that a focus on GUI is not sufficient:
* speech recognition
* IoT
* sensors

But anyway I asked a question and would like to see an answer to it.

This was more a rhetorical question. Apparently it didn't make it through. I'm 
worried about your vision closing a path for the future. Your vision setting a 
focus on past technologies, which will result in stagnation, shrinking and 
death. I'm asking you why I as a developer should contribute my time for a 
dieing community?
