How much incredibly more dominant do you foresee all EJB and J2EE servers becoming, once the new open source Apache Geronimo J2EE-certified server software becomes available?

So...you've built in a couple of questions into this one.
One, what's the impact of open-source on J2EE technologies? Answer: Huge. Like Apache web server, it's just a matter of time before web application servers are just standard implementations. App server vendors will start to compete higher on the food chain.

Two, how do you see the adoption of J2EE? That's a difficult question. I think that we're starting to see a little backlash against full-blown EJB implementations. People are looking to adopt only the parts of the J2EE specification that provide simplicity and measurable, immediate impact. At the same time, customers are starting to learn how to adopt Java in much simpler ways. You simply don't need EJB, or many of the heavier J2EE extensions, for most applications.
Three, what role will an open J2EE have on J2EE adoption? That's an easier question to answer. J2EE is already everywhere. We're seeing an incredible amount of investment in J2EE.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
