"But new flavors of Unix, long the favorite OS of Web site
operators, are providing stiff competition, even on company
networks. And at the most vibrant part of the computing
spectrum -- the portable devices and information appliances that
are expected to proliferate much more widely than the personal
computer -- Windows may not even be a significant factor...."
"Beyond the competition to run traditional business servers,
there's another front opening in the battle to put code that
directs the operations of electronic devices of all kinds in the
future business infrastructure. This is the firefight to put code
in the brains of small mobile devices, where no one cares about the
operating system. And here Windows 2000 and its lesser spin-offs,
such as Windows CE, right now look like they are not likely to play
a big role."

produced its OnChannel set-top box with a Web browser, it used a
stripped-down version of Linux, not Windows, to run the box because
it considers Linux more efficient."
