BW: Web Appliances are Eroding Windows and Internet Explorer Dominance

Apr 05, 2000, 15:52 (2 Talkback[s])

"Windows Share Will Drop to 57% in 2005."

"Web and information appliances are starting to erode the dominance of the Windows operating systems and Internet/Pocket Explorer. In the PC market Linux is taking market share from Windows. In web appliances Windows-based operating systems and Internet/Pocket Explorer will be among the leading products, but neither will dominate the market. The result is that among all web devices -- including PCs -- the market shares of Windows and Internet Explorer have already peaked and will drop rapidly in the next five years."

"These are some of the results from an information appliance and a PC market research report by eTForecasts."
