There is no "SHOULD" to marketshare. And frankly, its not interesting. Make Linux good, and people who want good software will use it for what its good for. That's all.
Every time people talk about what people "should" use, I get pictures of them walking into a persons home and formatting their hard drive. "Sorry, you SHOULD be using this."
Give it up. If Linux is on 5, 50 or 95 percent of machines five years from now is something I care not one bit about. What I do care is that in 5 years it is a stable, well-crafted, secure, and ultimately OPEN SOURCE platform.
