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 guess you are forgetting about Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. ;) Leopard kicks Vista's ass and any Linux distribution too.


Linux works on more hardware than either Vista or Mac.

Linux is never going to be as big as Mac OS X or Windows XP/Vista on the Desktop because of the lack of commercial support of CRITICAL applications.


Name some ... there will be a Linux equivalent. The Linux equivalent will quite often be more functional and cheaper ... but just not as well known through not being advertised.

We are also starting to see Linux versions of more and more commercial applications these days. Soon, if a company such as Adobe or AutoCAD has not ported an application, they will find themselves left behind.
