IS THIS END OF MICROSOFT and BEGINNINg OF UNIX WARS


No. The Unix wars ended long ago & Microsoft steadily rose to the top during it all. There very likely won't be any more OS wars within our lifetime. That's just how it is.

OS wars happens when a new form factor becomes mainstream, so it all depends whether we 'll see a new form factor in our lifetimes. We probably will.

In my lifetime (I'll be 40 in 2 months), I've seen many form factors. Almost none of them brought OS wars. The Unix wars weren't about form factors. Form factors have their own wars. Sometimes OSes are a part of those wars, but they're not usually involved in their own wars simultaneously.
