"For many years, people in the free software world have dreamed
of a day when GNU/Linux would replace Windows on the desktop.
Although the market share of GNU/Linux there is finally lifting
â€" figures range from 3% to 11%, according to the
sector â€" it seems unlikely that GNU/Linux will ever
take over the desktop from Windows. But that does not mean that
Windows will maintain its dominance there, simply that the future
is more complex than the monoculture we have seen and suffered for
nearly two decades."
