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."

"""As for the article, I have been hearing about the year of the linux desktop for almost a decade now. I'll believe it when I see it."""

I've been discussing this recently, my conclusion is that we'll know xxxx (or no specific year) was the year of linux on the desktop years after the fact.

for example, maybe we'll say in 2020 "yeah you remember, feature the evolution we saw in in 2008 really made the curve make a significant bend, and adoption started to rise dramitically".

will it be the focus on polish (that ubuntu now has, but fedora isn't much worse), will it be some sort of marketing drive, will it be the press, will it be this year or next year or will it ever be?

we'll only know it after it happened
