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."

Because there are so many Windows applications that don't have an OpenSource alternative (or an closed source alternative that runs on Linux). I'd love to completely ditch Windows and use Ubuntu exclusively but there are so many Apps that i use which require Windows or Mac.
I don't believe Wine is going to resolve this issue though. Apart from really trivial Programs nothing i ever tried worked on Wine... not even those Apps from the AppDB Platinum list.
If there only at least was a parallels equivalent on Linux (Hardware accelerated 3d+good integration).
