There’s no doubt that Linux would do very well in this new Microsoft-free world, but I think that only two or three distros would float to the top. Despite the vibrancy of the opensource community, it’s far too fragmented to be able to make concerted mass inroads into the home market in the same way that Windows has. The only ones which are going to make it are those with a proper infrastructure of support, training and compatibilty, and that’s only something which a large company making a serious effort can achieve.
