need a list of 'modern' OS services for desktop and server

hello, since i found lots of time on my hands i thought i would go ahead and see if i can come up with a modern-ish OS just for fun (just writing the "application design standards" and OS design right now, i doubt ill ever get to implement it). And i was trying to come up with services modern for applications for both desktop and server (and whatever else), i seem to have run out in this regard, ill post what i have:

user interface
revision control
file services
output for audio and picture
application config options

and thats all i can think up, but it seems quite small. I was hoping you guys can tell me of other things applications want and use on a almost basic level these day? Also I'm interested in what features users want from the OS.

Human interface
Installing XP once I noticed it copy the "human interface parser" and that set me to wondering if somewhere I could download a "monkey interface parser" or "alian interface parser"
