To some extent, maybe, but a lot of the Windows point-and-drool crowd  
do not have the potential to become contributing members of the free 
software community. They do have the potential to become leeches, 
leading to burned-out, frustrated developers who then become less 
available to the elite.

Would we as a community benefit from replacing MS in "the market"? 
Perhaps in one way, that there would be fewer spam-zombies in the wild, 
but otherwise I'm not sure.
