I'm running Manjaro right now, not that it matters, since all systems are prone to blocking. Same shit happens on any Linux distro.
Too many tabs in Chrome? Blocked.
Now, Chrome itself is prone to blocking, but the same thing CAN happen with Firefox, or pretty much anything else.
How fucking hard is it for a system to prioritize mouse and video drivers and the most basic system resources so I can still use terminal or some other way of managing tasks and recover my system without restarting.
The fact that Linux can't do this is criminal. Fucking criminal.
We have an open source system decades in development and it can still get routinely blocked by apps that should be running in a superficial layer of the system.

The Kubernetes community is building a platform that will make application development completely cloud infrastructure agnostic. Sam Ghods, co-founder of Box, said Kubernetes’ combination of portability and extensibility put it in a class of its own for cloud application development, during his CloudNativeCon keynote in November.
“We finally have a portable abstraction to work against in cloud infrastructure,” he said.
Running applications in our brave new container orchestration world is like managing herds of fireflies; they blink in and out. There is no such thing as uptimes anymore. Applications run, and when they fail, replacements launch from vanilla images. Easy come, easy go. But if your application needs to preserve state, it and must either take periodic snapshots or have some other method of recovering state. Snapshots are far from ideal as you will likely lose data, as with any non-graceful shutdown.

2017 in Android is Probably Going to be Awesome
I love Christmas and the whole holiday season, but now that it’s all but over for 2016, I’ve got to say, that I’m starting to get excited about 2017 and Android. As much as I’d also like to sit here with everyone else and continue to complain about how sh*tty parts of 2016 is/was, there are some good things on the horizon to consider. Plus, don’t we all need some positivity in our lives at this moment? (RIP, George and Carrie.)
Since then, there hasn't been a groundswell of people abandoning Adobe and Microsoft tools, but little-by-little, open source solutions, such as GIMP and Scribus, are making in-roads. For those of us in the industry who are thinking outside those 20th-century rooms filled with boxes, we continue to face the challenge of convincing people that there are alternatives. And anyone who has worked with open source software will tell you it's fun.
Open sourcing your code is only a small part of building a successful open source community. Like any new venture, you need a vision of what you want to achieve and a concrete plan that will take you there. You want to be able to answer questions about your project like:
The entire idea of one year or another being the year of the Linux desktop has become an insider joke among many within the FoSS community. The reason: the entire concept is deeply personal. What was a good year for the Linux desktop for one person might not have been for someone else.
For example, I'd suggest that the year that Knoppix Linux became popular was clearly the Year of the Linux desktop. For the first time, anyone who wanted to try Linux on their PC without installing it, could do so very easily. A lot of people believe the first live distros were Ubuntu in nature when it fact, Debian inspired Knoppix and later Simply Mepis were among the first.
In recent years, we've seen changes to the Linux desktop that have surprisingly outperformed my expectations.
