 I am sure that none of these Operating System has been developed in auomatic mode. For me, like one of the prophet of the "Personal Operating System", (A personal Operating System, made by a single person) all these Operating Systems are a sucess.
... and I suppose more and more will be added.
Why? ... because each one have its personal needs, its personal ideas and want specific things.
The incomming FTOSX 2008/2009: GAIA will include scientific material and training to learn in accord with the necessity of our training. I also don't see Linux too much "popular" for new image formats like JPG 2000 (JP2), or CR2.
Linux neither have serious installers ... Let me make a question to you ... if MS Windows XP for example will be available for free download ... Do you will use MS Windows XP ... or someone of the previous Linux?
May be ... you will need both. Honestly Linux is sitll better and faster ... but Windows popularity seems not arrestable. Neither the Mac OS ... may challenge Linux.
While you continue to speak on business of these ... no one will one ... and for the better of each one of us, ONE must be used.
Somedays ago, I download around 1000 JP2 files. I also loose some time trying to visualize these images under Linux, and some freeware compile fine, but nothing. Just at the first image my Kubuntu using a 32-bit PC ...
become blocked, and unable to continue to used ...
There are a Triumph  on the Linux arena, impossible on the Windows arena ... but neither releasing the source ... is sufficient for a complete success. The communism never will run the world, but the personal, the vertical approach. 
For this reason I release the book "The Art of Build your Personal Operating System" (today at 35 US$ at Amazon.com). Soon, we will release a new edition starting from we leave our customers.
The introductive chapter will be "Is possible to move from FTOSX 2004 to FTOSX 2008?" 
Stay tuned,
Thanks,
Giovanni.
