The competition worked hard at API stability. Even abandoned experiments
like silverlight are going to work identically for years in new os

GNOME decided to break it all the time (can't even get extensions work
from one gnome-shell version to the next one and no gracefully disabling
is still functional breakage).

And thus it 'lost to the competition'. No amount of indirection and
sandboxing is going to hide the utter lack of regard for stability of our
core desktop project
