Only 90% that's total fail.

Microsoft has held 98% of the desktop OS..... for nearly 3 decades.

-----------------------------------------------

Just one of those noticeable things.

Linux markets its cheaper products while appil trolls
who promote products to milk wimmin out of money with
their money milking debt creating iPiddys, and MP3 players such as ipod
will happily side with appil and their milking maidens targeting wimmin to
milk wimmin dry and putting them into debt.

Most wimmin I know that has an ipone or ipidyy of any sort are also
seriously deluded and seriously in debt. I bet appil doesn't care.

See the blue line, right below 100%, that's Microsoft

See the green line right on the 0% that's Apple.

See how the lines are essentially flat for 3 decades...... LOL

see how that has absolutely nothing to do with mobile devices, tablets
or phones, where microsoft is hurting, big time. microsoft might end up
being a distant third with windows phone 7 and nokia but that's about
it. they could even be #4 if hp/palm webos does well. it's far too
early to call.

apple has over 90% of the tablet market share right now. that will drop
a little with the zillions of android tablets coming out (notice that
they're not microsoft windows phone tablets, nor are they hp webos
tablets), but apple's mobile market share is not going to be 'right on
the 0%' any time soon, if ever.

And it's not at 98% for any month covered by that graph...

....nor for any other month going all the way back to November 2007.

It's not "right on 0%" and if you add up Mac OS and iOS (you know: the
"Apple" you just mentioned), it's now 7% and climbing...

....as long as hitslink reports.

How can we see "3 decades" when the data only goes back to November 2007?

Then I guess you're in the wrong group. The group for PMP devices is
two doors down.

Lets talk computer market share... since the group is "COMP"

Wow. Mind boggling. 7% if we throw in the personal media players. Hey

interesting definition of computer. that must mean ipods are also
computers, as are cameras and gps devices. all three can be unwrapped
and used in a car.

can you buy a minitower at best buy, unwrap it and use it in your car?
nope, not unless you have a fairly high power inverter and a spacious
car to set it all up. that must mean it's not a computer, using your
own definition.

Can you explain the process. I open it up in my car, turn it on,and
all I see is a USB connector pic telling me to connect to a computer.
Other than that I can't do anything. How did you get around this with
your iPad? Oh wait. You don't own one, you probably have no clue.

Can you get an email program for it?

Calendaring software?

Time billing software?

A word processor?

Spreadsheet?

Image editor?

Newsclient?

Is that specific enough?
