you have a better explanation for windows continuing loss of market share (and not just cause of netbooks)?
love to hear it.
The explanation is that market GROWTH for PC's has significantly slowed due to less money being available mainly in the consumer market.
Most, in fact nearly all, new PC's run Windows. Slowing of PC growth means slowing of Windows sales. Changes in a PRE-RELEASED version of Windows will have absolutely zero impact on Windows revenue, y'know?
And slowing of PC growth is only a factor, not the whole answer. But on the flipside, S&T growth increased - S&T is the products corporations buy to help them reduce costs and save money.
