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."

"linux desktop for almost a decade now."

Have you...good for you. Although I am not sure what you mean by this statement, The functional Desktop has been in place for several years, Superior Desktop alternatives have been available for two. OEM offering boxes in real numbers is getting there...what do you mean. Is GNU a real desktop alternative the answer has been yes for some time...or any of these times.

If you mean growth in market share GNU is the fastest growing OS currently, and this trend is set to continue.

Although I'm sure your talking about majority market share. Now thats an interesting predication. 5 years 10 years...never, and patents haven't even started hotting up.
