Crap! Two different articles today predicting declining market share for Apple, both claiming that Linux will surpass Mac for desktop OS market share: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nf/20030108/bs_nf/20409 http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nf/20030108/bs_nf/20404 Selected quotes: But IDC analyst Dan Kusnetzky said he doubts Apple's tactics will work. He told NewsFactor that the company's market share has declined in each of the last five years. "If the decline ... continues, it is very likely that Linux (news - web sites) will take the number two spot in the desktop OS market from Mac by the middle of 2003," he noted. In fact, Kusnetzky said, the company's future prospects appear dim, "unless Apple finds a way to radically change the game." and, about Linux: The OS is poised to continue spreading like wildfire in the server market next year, and some pundits are even saying it may overtake Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL - news) OS X as the number two desktop operating system.
