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."

What we bunch of nerds say, the only people who will determine the future OS landscape is the normal non-techy user, and as long as Windows is really the only option on most OEMs machines, as long as their kid's Disney and Spongebob DVD games are Windows or OS X only, Linux will not make a serious dent.

I want it to, you want it to, but the fact of the matter is that us geeks don't make these decisions. It's the user.
