To be fair I would like to see Windows die too.
I hope they achieve their landmark billion'th line of code and then the whole thing crumbles under it's own weight.

But TBH, I think neither of that is likely. Microsoft Windows will probably be around; I am sure they will figure out a way to keep the Windows cash cow alive.
As for Unix, even if it were be lose it's current popularity there will certainly be a SIG that will keep it alive, hey after all the code is open-source.

Personally, I think I might still be using Unix 3 decades later. But, who knows maybe quantum computers might become a reality by that time.
