    Unfinished question...therefore, it's only justified to answer it back with another question:

    Move on to where? Move on to what?

    P.S. I'm just kidding...:p

    Yes, it is about time...;)

    This article offers a glimpse of the immediate Future:

    "Such open web apps should move out of the labs stage as soon as possible to become a primary focus for the whole free software community. They will meet the increasing demand for easy-to-install applications on a range of platforms. They will prevent any one company from developing a monopolistic grip on modern end-user computing, be it for desktops, mobiles or tablets. And they will also provide a huge “free” boost to GNU / Linux, which at a stroke will acquire thousands of new applications. As such, open web apps represent a natural next stage in the evolution of free software, while building on, and providing continuity with, the extraordinary achievements of the last two and half decades."
