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.
