OSNews, Generic OSes "What is the world's most widely used operating system?" The answer is in an interesting Linux Insider piece about ITRON, 'a Japanese real-time kernel for small-scale embedded systems' that runs on a lot of "mobile phones, digital cameras, CD players and other electronic devices."

I am sure MS had something to do with this, and/or Bill's high-profile lawyer father.

Its possible but it appears MS did not get heavily involved in lobbying efforts within the government until the mid-late 90s after being brought up on anti-trust charges.

I can't find anything related to MS lobbying in the late 80s, esp in regards to this.

So basically you think it happened and I think it did not happen, and there dosen't appear to be any proof one way or the other.

Not that it matters either way.
