Default Swine flu vs seasonal flu?

http://www.philly.com/philly/health_..._n o_flu.html

The article linked above is about the Pandemic H1N1/Swine Flu which seemingly extinguishing our normal seasonal flu's.

The new flu will probably replace the old seasonal flu but the question is if it'll do the same this time around.

For the last decades we had 2 seasonal flu's circulating (H3N2 and the old school H1N1) which wasn't the case in earlier 'post-pandemic' years.

I wonder how this'll turn out.

I haven't seen much mention of seasonal flu recently except in one or two pieces from SE-Asia. No idea what the pattern there is like.
