For 8 years now each year has been declared "the year of Linux

Suse is the desktop of choice, worldwide.

They are one in the same.  Suse sells support, not software.

Everybody have Windows, even Linux fanatics, and I do not know a

I paid $89 for 9.0 and just ordered the upgrade for $59. Linux comes preinstalled from, the worlds largest retailer.

That sentence alone qualifies you for an award of putting the most disinformation in a single sentence. I cannot answer it so much as to ignore it completely.

But you can only dream. You have about 2 years more to dream!

But there is hope. When MS adopts Linux (after the CLR is everywhere)

That will never happen. At that point the principle reason for m$ existance ( keeping the stock price high, so Gate$ can sell his shares ) would drop to nothing. Also, any customer who had his arm twisted to get him to pay high costs and implement buggy w2003 servers, would have a right to sue it to the ground.

Basically the owner of M$ is letting it die of natural causes.

In the meanwhile I suggest using Apple OSX.

The Power PC chip is made by IBM. Apple can't write an OS ( it borrowed BSD ) it can't create a chip ( IBM ), it can't run a music service ( publishers forced them to raise prices ) and the one shining light is I-POD, an overblown, heavy and obsolete-at-birth MP3 player, sold mainly to artsy people with too much money.
