The popularity of Ubuntu should in theory make the other distros also gain more users from people who got into Linux and want to look around a bit and try something new again.
    I would agree with you, I would say that linux in general is gaining some ground from Microsoft in the home computer market, especially with the creation of Android the masses are seeing what an open source OS can do.

          Agreed, with the exception of gaming there isn't too much that an average home user can do with Windows that they can't with Linux/Android etc.

            im guessing then that when chrome os comes out it will take a relatively large share of the market, like the browser did. not exactly to rival windows, but large relative to the other linux distros.

              I doubt it will.
              ChromeOS is a rather pointless OS. The only people likely to adopt it are those who are already following the project.
