They won't have to. Some FOSS system WILL eventually supplant Windows/Mac/Linux and all the others eventually. A more interesting prediction is when exactly that will happen. I've got my eye on ReactOS, and a handful of Linux distros, but until there is a drop in windows replacement that "just works", everyone will keep using the other three. Have you checked out TinyXP, by the way? It's interesting that an independent party can make such a superior shipping version of Windows, and makes me wonder why MS doesn't try and sell a package like that. I doubt very much people would opt for the home version of any OS if there was a robust TinyXP derivative available for a cheap download fee or something....

I think you really need to put a timeframe on this thing...

Well IMHO the Internet is the future. Google will probably release something where the browser is not like any other application. Basically your computer will be a system for accessing web applications.
