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.
