The statement "Linux will never overtake Windwos" is quite valid -
though it now depends on how much Vista is going to suck. But looking
back at the last 10 years, there will probably another 10 of Windows

Well, compare it to the middle age or whatever: a bunch of pawns that do
not really care about what bad the aristocracy does as long as they are
not unhappy.
