WOW!

I bet this will will increase the OSS marker share on the desktop from .36% to .36001%!

If you can convince another 10,000,000 to convert to Linux in the next year, you might hit .4%!!!!

Of course you've lost Birmingham's 1500:

NotParker,

Force GNU/Linux pre-installed on brand name systems like Dell and watch how fast consumer market share would jump.

This is specifically how fantastic operating systems such as Windows 98 and ME came to power in it's day.

Any questions?
