As I've said before, that's irrelevant. If there's a good, free client
side implementation that is better than the alternatives for developing
web apps, some intranets will use it. It can grow from there to take
over the market. This has happened before. This is *exactly* how IE and
AJAX got into the position they're in today.
Of course, this only works if there actually is a good client side
implementation bundled with a browser that lets developers do things
they can't easily do today with alternative technologies.
