Birded linux geeks? Dreaming of world domination? Are you kidding us, 
perhaps hoping for a few bites?

Here's one, I think at last count Microsoft has about 95% of the desktop 
market which is pretty close to world domination. It is also a major 
consolidation of wealth, with Gates being a direct beneficiary. 
Dominating the world with Linux will not benefit people like Gates or 
Jobs, however it will benefit most of the rest of us.
