I sorely miss one most important point in that list: productive applications.
I meet more and more people who really realy love the interface, the stability, the overall feel of Ubuntu and other Linux Distros. These people are eager to switch but they are glued to Windows and/or Mac because they need specific productive tools that are only available for these.
Of course porting of Photoshop or ProTools would help that but that is not to expect. So Linux should offer software with similar powers. Ardour comes quite near today GIMP is good Inkscape is excellent but GIMP is far from being a real match for PS and Plugins are entirely another story.
So as far as I can see, productive users will not switch, before the tools for Linux make considerable progress and well-known people use them for well known jobs.
Canonical could help a lot to speed up those really important developments....

Great to see +Mark Shuttleworth announce that a converged mobile device that delivers a desktop experience will ship this year - https://youtu.be/9IfgX-k7Hag?t=535 - this in my mind has been a gem in the Ubuntu opportunity. Looking forward to seeing it. Keep up the great work team Ubuntu!

Are you a translator? One interesting challenge in building software that hundreds of millions of kids can learn to read from is that it needs to be available in both Swahili and English. I am exploring whether teams can collaborate around translations and would love input and guidance from Open Source translators around how this kind of collaboration could work - share your thoughts on http://forum.xprize.org/t/english-swahili-translation-collaboration/1563
