Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"How do you compete in a business where the next-largest company
holds a market share hovering just under 100 percent? That's the
quandary WordPerfect faces...."
"Five years ago WordPerfect was the world's leading word
processor, with more than 50 percent of the market. The program
lost its place largely as a result of blunders by the program's
former owner, Novell, and astute marketing by Microsoft, which
figured out before anyone else that programs packaged in office
suites were popular."
"Today many people are surprised to learn that WordPerfect still
exists, so complete is Microsoft Word's dominance. But WordPerfect,
the oldest word processing program still in wide production for
PCs, is thrumming along."
