What doesn't Linux do for me?

It doesn't do my laundry.
It doesn't write emails to my mom (or my ex).

Here some things that I think it should be able to do, but I don't know yet:

Choose my songs - is there any app that will predict what music files you'll like? My mp3 player has a feature like this in its shuffle.

How about this option: a quick boot that opens a web browser and a normal looking desktop. As features are loaded in the back end, then they become available. Like 'plugging in' to each app on your computer as if it were a source of service.

Linux doesn't diagnose or fix my broken electronics. It would be great if I plugged in my old digital camera - the one that takes black pictures - to see any error codes. An even better application like this ould let me know what I could still do with the camera, and allow me to use those parts (the camera's LCD screen still works fine, for example..).

Do you think it would be cool: A smart phone that can be taken over by your latop? Automatic syncing, like I've seen with some phones and some very expensive BMWs. It could be that if you brought your phone near you could use it as a second display, or copy files over as a second desktop and just take that with you.

Can Linux help me heal a broken heart?

That part I think it can do, or at least help: LQ forums.
