    They "own" about 86% now....Hmmm wonder why? Every PC sold has Windoz on it! Why not sell boxes with no OS preloaded?!?!?!? Never understood why it ws not that way!

    Better OS's out there, including Linux, OSX, etc.

    /\ it's true bundled things are usually cheaper. however, many (if not most??) linux operating systems are free. And i'm not sure they are any hard to install these days that any other software.

    But are they vulnerable to Google? Will MS be dust in 7 years? Or can they re-invent themselves?

    no, what I was saying is when you buy your box at Best Buy or Circuit City etc., the store loads whatever OS you want!!!

    Man, for a supposedly technologically advanced society that we are suppose to be, most know very little of how their machines work!

    In selling computers for 7 years on a retail level, I saw every conceivable "reason" why they were returned...all operator created!

    Microsoft dominates the world now. However, after seeing and using Vista and MS Office 2007 I really think they have done themselves in. I don't know if you have seen Microsoft Office 2007 but it will be a real huge learning curve for most people. Its not like all other office versions like from Office 95, to Office 97, to Office Xp, to Office 2003. Its a huge change. Everything a person has learned back to the original office is null and void if you learned the menus rather then the icons as now everything is done via icons. Open Office has a real good chance as the learning curve from Office 2003 to Office 2007 is much greater then from Office 2003 to Open Office 2.1. Plus all documents from 2003 are supported in Open Office and Open office has a supported Open Document Format…a format in which MS has tried to change.

    Vista is such a huge change, almost linux like. So why not use linux such the learning curve will also be large.

    So I predict in 5 to 7 years MS will be a minority rather then a majority.

    Could microsoft release a proprietary linux? or would they have to make a look-alike?

    Re: Microsoft will dominate the world

    I don't think they'll dominate. I would strongly consider a move to linux or OS X, EXCEPT....the software that I need to use is Windows only, and is extremely graphics intensive (ie, the drivers need to be perfect). So I'm stuck with Windows. Many companies are really only looking for the ability to run Office, so it doesn't make that big a deal between OS X and Windows as far as that's concerned. But the biggest thing that MS has going for it is that Windows is so pervasive. Everyone knows how to use, at the very least, the basic features.

    The companies that could be in hot water in the future are the PC manufacturers. Since Windows can now run on Macs (Microsoft is OK here...have to buy a Windows license), there may not be as much of areason to buy a PC as there has been in the past.

    Re: Microsoft will dominate the world

    The use of Linux or any part thereof is open to any one who wants to adopt it and modify it for any reason, but the person who adopts it is legally obligated to release the source code of the new product he's created in turn to the general public without charge.
    Correct me if I am wrong, but I dont think thats the complete story. You only need to realease the code if you ship the software, otherwise you dont need to ship anything. Hence why google doesnt put out the version of linux they use with all the changes they have made, especially to the filesystem.

    Is Microsoft going to dominate? Well if they can get their act together, yes they have the power and the resources. They fumbled with vista too much, and Microsoft is cleaning house with all their top executives. They are beginning to realize what they are up against and are going to fight tooth and nail.

    I dont really think they would ever switch to a subscription model for windows. Perhaps in poorer countries where you get the hardware for free and then you rent the software, but otherwise no. People want to own their computer.

    Bill Gates is a god. He can rule the world. Probably do a good job of it.
