Global IT firm predicts Linux will have 20% desktop market share by 2008

Anyone trying to predict technological change years in advance is taking a risk.

The number in 2007 is about 6% but should get a big pop from the flop of Vista. Growth rate is large here. Where else are XP people to go after M$ kills their OS? Vista will not run on 80% of existing PCs and running XP unsupported is insane.
