I doubt this. Right now very few people use Linux for anything serious.
Students, ISP's, a smattering of scientists, and distribution maintainers.
Millions of people use it for hobbies, for learning, but not for preparing
their end-of-month reports or balancing their checkbook.
Go to see the "Titanic" movie. Most of the sea scenes are in fact
computer genrated. Done using about 120 Alphas running Linux.
Next time the Space Shuttle takes off you will be conforted to learn
Linux is on board.
