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."

As a long time windows user. (i.e. since version 2). Linux will NOT take over the desktop. Maybe for geeks and nerds yes, but for *real* people. The only choices are Windows and Mac OSX.

personally speaking (as a geek) my next pc will be an Apple box. OSX does *just work*, it's usuable, functional, visually pleasing and isn't the pile of steaming sh*te that Vista is.

That's fine, so long as you capitulate to the "Overlords of Cupertino", and use their OS the way they want you to.

Others of us would rather not be locked-in.
