LOL! Saying it twice is not going to help it.
Fact of the matter is, people are getting more Tech-Savvy; and as a result of such Microsoft is going to have to change - not with its tactics of making people pay and buying intellectual property everywhere; which although for some reason people hate them doing such, the users gain from the availability of the Support, the Updates, MSN, the help and the huge usability of Microsoft.
I seriously believe that Mac is doomed from the release of Longhorn to a couple of months after the release of Blackcomb. What Linux will have to do to not suffer this fate from whatever wierdly-code-named Version of Windows Preceeds Blackcomb is to stop focusing on taking down Microsoft - or releasing the people from 'The Evil Shackles of Microsoft's Monopoly' but to start focussing on the Software, the GUI, and the Usability. They will also, to achieve more than 5 or 6% of all Computers, have to stop Open-Source all together. Its not safe for the general populous; and soon enough people will realise that.
