The Motley Fool predicts a weakening of Windows

The Motley fool views the Free Software phenomenon to be a social movement similar to Gandhi's march to the sea: Indians were being burdened by high salt taxes, so instead Gandhi organised a march to the sea where Indians could make their own salt. Similarly, as the software industry is not providing what we want, we got together and built our own software. The weakness in his analogy is that it supposes that once the problem goes away, so will free software.
