Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

I think this assessment is premature. Ubuntu, although the most integrated offering on Linux, remains 'not quite done'. In that sense, any number of Linux distribution derivatives could become dominant in its place.

Moreover, as we can see from the EEPC, OLPC, Everex gPC, hardware vendors shipping popular hardware are actually trending towards custom solution rather than comprehensive offerings like Ubuntu (none of the above is even a derivative of Ubuntu).
