Maybe, but I just don't see it coming any time soon, and by that, I mean the next five years. Beyond that, who the heck knows?

Commercial vendors (which is all that this really is about) will write programs where they can sell them. The performance increase for Linux instead of Wine is worth it as long as there continues to be enough people who use it in their market segment. The only change I see is that the vendors will stop supporting Solaris/SPARC and move to Solaris/Intel. There are a surprising number of vendors in this boat.
