A few more:

1. Canonical, not being able to learn from their mistakes, will keep driving another nail in Ubuntu's coffin (Ubuntu 13.10 will use the CCV number of your credit card instead of the password)
2. As a result of 1, distros like Mint will further strengthen their position.
3. Due to Valve's bringing a steam client to the world of penguins, Linux will gain 1-3% of the desktop market. Soon Valve will abandon Linux based desktop clients to focus predominantly on their Linux-based video game console.
4. A new stable release of Slackware will be released.
5. Python 2.x still be the default Python version for all the distros.
6. Apparently, there will be no 2013 because of some old calendar is going to end.

Hasn't Python3 been Arch Linux's default for a while?

This one first, just because the Mayas didn't count leap-years in their calendar and it ended already some time ago. Please don't tell that the believers, they may kill the messenger.

This one is actually interesting, because it is sort of circular. To keep the coffin analogy, if Ubuntu will be buried, what will this mean for Mint? Without Ubuntu there will not be a Mint, I would think, except for the case that all the Ubuntu developers together change to Mint. Where will all the Mint users go in that case? Back to Debian? Or will Mint rebase itself to a different distro?

OFFTOPIC: I just used your Slackbuild to install the newly released i3 4.4 (pulled from the git) on my laptop, works fine and the new i3-dmenu-desktop is nice. Thanks for your effort with your scripts.

Thanks. Yes, I've also been playing with it. +1 for i3-dmenu-desktop.
