Here's an idea. As an alternative to wrestling with resource heavy
applications directly, implement heavy taxation on consumer device
computational power. That is, tax production and consumption of
desktop or portable devices based on how much they exceed the set
limits of computational power and energy efficiency. The computational
power limits could be something like a 2008 eee pc. You naturally
can't use resource crazed apps like google docs, facebook or modern
build systems, but everything sensible runs great.

To continue the regulation rant, closed source should be taxed
similarly. Arguably, states lose more money due to closed source than
most companies. At the same time, private interests invest into open
source much more than states. This taxation should be used to fund
open source.
