Everyone has their predictions for the new year but do they often prognosticate using an animated video? The folks over at rPath created a clever video animation depicting their reasonable and humorous predictions for 2010. rPath might be best known for its online virtual appliance builder. You can also download rBuilder. They're also known for release automation, cloud computing, virtualization, self-service IT and much more.

If you'd like to see their cool webinar, hosted by your own DaniWeb Linux Guy, click on over to Linux Magazine and check it out.

I've built several appliances using their online wizard and have done so for a few years now. I only recently got to know them on a more personal basis from the webinar. But the 8 predictions for IT in 2010 is a must catch.

What do you think of their predictions? Did they leave out anything?
