    Windows 2050

    Windows 2050, anyone think there will be one ? Will microsoft still be around, and if they are will they still have the massive desktop world market share that they currently have ?

    Any thoughts ?

    M$ will be around. Stronger for sure. Don't forget M$ have something that Linux doesn't have, millions of $ ready to spend in research. M$ is too user friendy, too much implend into the heart of maybe people to change to Linux. For sure Linux gonna be upgrade but the question is

    When will be Linux will reach the same level of M$ on user interaction, easy to use, possibility to run legacy code? If Linux is more easy to use for end user that Windows, M$ will go down. Until then, dream on.

    Thats a pretty long time we're talking about...about 50 years...maybe M$ will go down because something else might come into the market...something better than Linux and M$...but who knows...its a pretty long time

    I don't see that happening, Microsoft has dominated the pc market :/ and most users don't like to learn new things, they like using what they know, I'm thinking that Microsoft will just keep growing until the gov. starts cutting them up like they did to AT&T
    A mind full of questions has no room for answers

    The question should be "Are humans still going to be around." The way we are going there will only be cochroaches and Microsoft in 2050....
