Linux ever taking off?

October 1, 2010 2:57am CST
I keep wondering if Linux will ever grab more than 2% market share. Since the end of the '90s Linux crowd preaches that the year when "Linux will take off" is just around the corner. Will that year ever come? I guess not. Windows is well established and feel very safe with 7. The future is perhaps cloud computing. Maybe there...Linux...? What you think?

Well I was NOT speaking about how reliable is Linux (I use also Ubuntu), but if will ever grow in the market. Linux is reliable but used only by few enthusiasts and virtually not present in the enterprise.
