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."

Come on. Vista may be off to a slow start. But I think it will eventually gain significant market share. ;-)

Certainly it has gotten a lackluster reception. But, as you say, OEM installation pretty much ensures its eventual market success... which is what my previous tongue-in-cheek post alluded to.

As to the "Linux Hater" part... and as I have said before... I live and breathe Linux and OSS. But I simply refuse to follow the Piper Song of Stallman into La La Land. Seems like we might have gotten past that point, agreeing to disagree, by now. Guess not. ;)
