Ubuntu has a very bright future on the desktop I think. It has a lot of traction, something other distros, e.g., Red Hat, don't have in this part of the market.

I don't see Ubuntu making much headway in the server arena though. Those are areas that Red Hat and Novell/SuSE are doing a good job in, and I don't see any clients itching to move.

What Ubuntu should be focusing on is the management of the desktop. SuSE is pushing this hard, and it makes a lot of sense. We'll see..
