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."

Which is completely useless to me - who is located down in New Zealand.

Not that I'm interested in it, I have a Mac and happy with it. Just pointing out that if Linux wants to compete, it needs to be offered globally.

Hang on, thats strange logic.

Someone claims that Microsoft has a monopoly due to OEM.

Another says that OEM's are now offering Linux on the machines as an option.

Now you're claiming that you don't need to have it offered via OEM to make it a viable alternative?

Mate, you and your linux zealots need to have a group meeting to find out which hymn sheet you're singing from, because you're all over the show.
