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.

How can they mention the iphone and not mention symbian?
The iphone has less than 0.5% of the market.
They may compete with Apple on the desktop but on the phones? Why mention Apple at all? Even if you add all the other OS together, that's not half of symbian market share. Both Microsoft ane Apple are irrelevant in that market.
