Microsoft Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer had some interesting things to say yesterday about which companies Microsoft sees as its competitors in the client operating system space. You'd think Apple was their number one competitor - and you'd be wrong. Microsoft sees two other competitors as their primary adversaries.

Linux worldwide

Ballmer and this article are admitting what I've been saying all along - worldwide, Linux is a bigger threat than Apple. Linux comes in all shapes and sizes, from servers, to netbooks, to mobile phones, and it's eating away at profits in most Microsoft markets.

Right now it's not eating away at the market share, but it does force a lower price point for Microsoft in many cases.
