nothing will significantly change

Unless MS decides to go the way Apple has taken with MacOsX nothing will significantly change on the desktop.Why should MS do so one could ask retorically or not.Most users aren't concerned about spyware because they don't know about its existance.Neither do they enter the sites such as osnews etc.MacOsX is a great OS but nobody cares.New PC's are still being sold on a large scale with XP preinstalled.Unless that doesn't change the desktop world will not likely transform in the nearby future.
