What additional features you want to see in Linux

Are there any additional features or applications you want to see in Linux ?
The goal is to concentrate on new open source projects as per the user's requirements.

Google Chrome has been Windows only for too long. That's the only one that really springs to mind.

EDIT: Suspend and hibernate never seem to work properly, for me at least. Also, I see something fundamentally broken in the idea of hibernating by saving the contents of ram to the swap partition - what if that swap partition is full?

I can say a feature I'd like to see REMOVED - Ubuntu should IMHO drop Pulseaudio from the default install.

Google Earth browser plug-in for Linux would be nice; so would a functional equivalent of nokia's PC Suite (as opposed to the many part-solutions that exist at the moment).

Any chance of a tea making machine?

A version of netstumbler for Linux. There is no Linux app that I am aware of that is anywhere near as easy to use for aiming antennas. If you can see the graph on the monitor, you can tell how your aiming job is coming along.
