Linux developers don't have the kind of cash Microsoft & others do to spend on advertising & self promotion. Open source stuff certainly does have the potential to be far superior to it's propriety equivalent, but it will never have the financial back to wage a campaign of brand saturation. At least, not anytime soon. The combining of the 2 biggest Linux development groups, along with a new standardization movement for mobile phone Linux is certainly the start of something big. As to whether it gains market share. . . who knows?

I really doubt it. They've had a decade to get their act together, and all they have to show for it is, uh, nothing.

It's not like the world's crying out for open source operating systems anyway.
