Linux will not displace Windows so soon

Having installed and used Windows XP Professional on my work laptop for the past two days, I am amazed by the progress Windows has made. I have been “using” it on my home desktop for some time, but since it is only to play games (this is my own XBox), I have not had any opportunity to see how Windows XP performs for serious tasks (such as programming).

Well, my brief experience has already convinced me that the average Joe will not abandon Windows for Linux so soon. Those who still think that Linux will conquer the desktop should take some time off advocating, sit in front of a computer running Windows XP and give it a serious test-drive.
