Windows If you shout something loud enough and many people are saying it, does it become true? Some groups of people (include tech journalists and Linux advocates, such as Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols) have a psychological need to find Vista lacking. Mr. V-N has predicted that Vista will have all manner of problems, so his clear interest is to point out everything that is wrong with the OS. Who cares if he has to even make some stuff up?

There will be a steady decline in Windows marketshare. MS will have a very hard time keeping their monopoly with an abomination like Vista.

How can you possibly support such a statement? Vista is the default OS being sold by virtually every PC OEM. As long as that remains the case, Vista will increase in market share. It can't help but increase.

Vista marketshare will increase, but overall MS marketshare will decline, because of people switching to Macs and Linux. This is the beginning of the end of a vile monopoly.

That's an interesting speculation, but there's no data to back it up. Any change in market share would require quite a few years to come to fruition. If you believe otherwise, you're kidding yourself. Or you're smoking something excellllllllllllllllent. ;-p
