With the increasing popularity of Linux and the ease of its installation in new distributions, will Linux (or another open source operating system) be able to take over Microsoft''s stranglehold of the market?
Yes, open source will prevail over proprietary corporate operating systems
Yes, as long as Linux continues to improve and more and more hardware/software companies support it
No, Linux does not (and will never) have the software quantity or quality that Windows has
No, Microsoft will find ways to suppress Linux before it starts infiltrating the computers of the general public
Maybe; it is too early to tell what Microsoft has up its sleeve, and how the public will react to a Windows-like OS that is not Windows
