I don't think there's much question about *that*.  After all, if CP/M
still survives, more than 20 years after its introduction and more than
12 years after it lost market dominance, without source or support,
it's pretty clear Linux will survive for a couple of decades at least.
And most of the obstacles that lost CP/M the market -- prices way too
high, slow innovation, etc. -- are simply impossible for Linux to
succumb to.
