I totally agree. I'm on Linux _only_ for several years now, but personally, I don't want Linux to replace Windows - I'd be happy if "we" had a market share big enough to get recognized by hardware vendors and some software companies, but a market share small enough for Linux to remain "ours". Well I hope you know what I mean. Linux should just be one respected OS amongst others (Windows, Mac OS, BSD etc.). It should just be well balanced amongst those systems (and hopefully Windows will die out sometimes in the nar future, so we have only UNIX-like OSes left, which makes all the OSes heterogenous but still compatible at the same time ;-) )
