Really though, Microsoft is for the typical people. They buy a computer with it pre-installed, ands when it starts up for the first time, it tells you how to use it. Linux is more for the people that understand the computer stuff. I don't know what'll happen ... I bet Linux will become more popular, but unless it gives in and takes after Microsoft, it won't dominate. But it'll be a strong OS forever, waaay better than Microsoft has to offer. Anybody who says MS is better doesn't use Linux.
Well, if we compare computers to cars, as the manufacturers get more confidence they will make cars which need less mantainence, but when they do need it - you will be forced to see a 'professional'. there will always be car builders, hobbyists, etc. but as cars go more mainstream, they will be made to work by themselves (even if the technology is being retarded to fit this need). Who thinks that a similar situation may occur with comps? As we create more specific technologies, things like web appliances, etc. may become more popular and knowledge of computers will be even less - creating two poles of computer geeks and mass consumption that goes by the market. What do you think?
