    I don't agree with the last comment. It is rare in the Serbian part of Bosnia-Herzegovina, and in a significant part of Serbia-Montenegro;

    but Serbian-Latin is becoming more popular in Serbia, notably by young people in cities that prefer the Latin script simply because it allows them to communicate more easily with other communities (not only the Croatian one), and they don't want to care about the past troubles between Serbians and Croatians.

    Also, most Serbians in the diaspora use the Latin script, notably in Western and Central Europe and in America (those living in Russia, Ukraine and Bulgaria still prefer the Cyrillic script for the same reason of proximity and facility of communications).
