Microsoft Sometimes, the sheer size of a company like Microsoft can make it quite hard to see and realise just how large and profitable such a company can really be. In these kinds of situations, there's nothing like a clear graph to make all those pretty numbers tangible. Up to a point.

The only thing you can really see is that they still make a lot of money, the rest is marketing talk.

For the moment their just isn't an OS that will take over the market. As long as that isn't the case the marketing strategy of MS will work like it does now.

I'm pretty sure Apple doesn't want to become larger (much more market share). It would change the company too much.
The group behind linux should change their principles, otherwise they will never convince the major hardware companies to deliver good drivers and major software companies to deliver equally good product for it. Off course there are examples, but those are just a small percentage of the whole market.
