Windows I wish more people who work or have worked for large technology companies were as open, honest, and excited as Steve Wozniak still gets over new technology and gadgets. He recently bought a Nokia Lumia 900 - and he's loving it. So much so, in fact, that he claims it's better than Android and iOS in many respects.

WP7 is nice. So was OS X, and that didn't make it succesful against the Windows monopoly.

OS X (Mac OS) doesn't have a big market share because Apple didn't let the OEMs install it. If Apple had been more liberal, the OS market might have been different.

Remember that Apple are VERY bad at dealing with OEMs. The last time they tried was a failure of such epic proportions that employees and shareholders from the old days are unlikely to let it happen again.

OSX is actually very successful. Who cares about the "against WIndows monopoly" part? It's successful in its own right regardless of how successful Windows is.
