Is Linux going to take over the PC market from Microsoft with a cheaper solution like the one of the 130$ OLPC becoming mainstream? Is Linux going to win at the Ultra Portable PC market over Microsoft with the cheaper platform based on low power chips like the PepperPad 3? Is Linux going to dominate in the pocket-sized Tablet industry and phone section with products like the Nokia N800 against the iPhone from Apple and the Smart-phone and Pocket PC products of Microsoft?

Here are some of the Linux related videos from CES 2007:

The 100$ Laptop OLPC is running Pepper OS, with Firefox and DivX at 480x360 resolution running smoothly.

The black and white mode visibillity of the OLPC display is demonstrated outdoors and OLPC Chief Connectivity Officer Michail Bletsas is talking about the Mesh networking.

A C-sound music synthesiser software is demonstrated running on two synchronized 130$ Laptops.

A talk with a Marvell representative about possible upcoming 802.11N and WiMax versions of the 100$ Laptop.

A nice Geode-based Linux tablet demo of the PepperPad 3.

Finally a Nokia N800 interview with the product manager.

So judging from these superior products shown at the CES 2007 based on Linux, competing in the industries of Laptops, Tablets and Smart-Phones, Linux is cheaper, has better features, consume less power and probably takes better advantage of the technologies that are available. How soon do you think that Linux is going to dominate the Consumer Electronics industry? Is 2007 the year the shifts in dominance will happen?
