Hi :)
I think Windows will continue to dominate the desktops and full laptops, maybe even down to 

Netbooks died off for 1 reason only.  That was because people wanted Windows on them and then found 
that the machines ran ridiculously slowly.  Any version of Gnu&Linux, even Ubuntu, made the 
machines really fast and seemingly powerful.  People weren't ready for non-Windows back then.  
However they were a good ice-breaker.  Now people are happy with even smaller and less powerful 

So, while Windows dominates the desktops we keep hearing that the "age of the desktop is over" and 
it's already being reported that comparing the amount of time people spend on desktops compared to 
using hand-helds has already tipped in favour of the hand-helds and other mobile devices.  

Regards from 
Tom :)

And some more info and statics with charts, to refudiate your claims of 
Windows XP and Vista (the latter also a disaster for MS) of combined 
market share.

And it shows what you know of Linux. FACT, it along with various 
flavours of Unix, power the known global Internet servers, 
Observatories, MET/weather offices, Space exploration, the Mars 
machines, the majority of military machines/equipment, medical 
equipment, and lo and behold a good number of desktop, laptops around 
the world, and the no.1 O/S for mobile - Android, followed shortly by 
Firefox O/S and Ubuntu Touch.

You like many, incorrectly and simply refer to the desktop/laptop use of 
an O/S, yes where MS currently dominates, but not for long.

Good Day

Just know that they are taking a knock, what with Windows 8 only
migrating into less than 2% of the world market of their existing XP and
Windows 7 base

Windows 8 already has a market share of Windows XP and Vista combined 
on newer hardware (It's about 9 times of Linux marketshare, btw.).
