I think we need to forget about Bug #1. If Linux was ever going to erode Windows' position it would have done so already.
The Linux community produces a lot of great stuff, and there are a lot of areas where desktop Linux is better than Windows. Is that not enough? Expecting our little niche desktop OS to somehow beat down the sweaty 900lb gorilla of Redmond is unrealistic IMO.
I'm not so sure about that, Linux is widely used for Servers, Super computing, Various Government agencies. It is just a case of gaining pop traction in the desktop market.
