Hi Amit,

Revenues and profits (and shares for that matter), are not the same as
market share. Just because revenue is increasing, doesn't mean they
aren't losing market share. If they are losing market share, it
just means their revenue isn't increasing as much as it could be.

So I'm not sure that
I checked MS revenues and profits on
tells us anything useful in this regard.

But the numbers don't lie.
Not always true. As they say: "Lies, damn lies, and statistics".

 Hi Amit

I understand where you are coming from, and the good news is, in
your favour, that MS in both it's O/S and office suite are losing
market share in a big way. Here's an article from Ubuntu founder
and my countryman Mark Shuttelworth on his take on MS and Ubuntu. I
like his statement that the no.1 bug in Linux has now been
fixed/closed, in that MS no longer dominates majority market share.

But the numbers don't lie. I checked MS revenues and profits on and it doesn't look like MS is losing market share.
MS losing share might be an illusion.
