More interesting to me is IDC's claim (in the same article)
that Linux will have 6% of desktops by 2007.  Might not seem
like a lot, but it's huge in terms of *rate* of growth.

And 6% will become quite annoying to hardware and software
vendors who have had the luxury of shrugging off Linux
compatibility in the past.
