Will Linux Topple Windows from the Desktop?

Will Linux ever oust Windows from most people's desktops? Backing from big vendors like Novell and Sun certainly doesn't hurt. Yet lingering barriers
remain.

During recent industry conferences, Linux veterans pointed to factors that include usability, fragmentation in users' preferences, and the need for
both more desktop apps and better tech support.

"A few years from now, Microsoft will turn around and see that the desktop is no longer owned by Microsoft," predicted Brian Behldendorf, Apache
co-founder and CTO of Collab.Net, during an interview at the Comdex show in Las Vegas.
