    Sure. All it will take is an app or feature that is valuable to a near majority of home users that can't be duplicated under Windows. You can calculate the odds of that with enough effort. -- Tom

    Possible by not very probable. Microsoft has to much of a foothold and to much $ to let that happen.

    It depends how much u feel comfort either on Windows / Linux. Basically Linux is command line based OS while Windows is based on graphics or GUI. Most people not comfortable in command line that is why they incline to Windows. Where Linux is more secured than Windows. I am not going to compare Windows and Linux, actually it may vary man to man and their environment. Linux is growing and already it is matured and industry standard OS while time will say either Linux will overtaking Windows.

    Possible? yes. Likely? No. You may get new users to get on the Linux bandwagon but for users deeply entrenched in Windows they are there to stay. The time and effort to switch over, purchase new software and retrain staff and programmers would prohibit the change for most companies.

    For many, an upgrade to Windows 8 might not be significantly better or worse than migrating to Linux.
