It's possible.

There are a lot of experienced J2EE developers out there who have only
ever used full commercial stacks.  Asking them to choose between two web
containers is like asking them to choose EJB, MQ and Web Service
implementations.  They may pick Tomcat because they vaguely recognize
the name, but having to make that choice will add anxiety to their
install experience.

Geronimo is also likely to become popular in academic settings (both
classroom and self-study) where people will need to install the server
before they get around to learning what a web container is.
