If you are going to write about the threat to Windows that Linux presents, then you will either have a very large document on your hands, or you can refine it a little - which area of computing? 'Desktop' use (God, I hate that term), server markets? Others?

I agree with Edward 78, covers a wide range of OS's. However, (and I'm not trying to start a flame war here) the site is terribly biased against Microsoft and does not give an accurate comparison IMO.
