So Microsoft suddenly finds itself having to try and differentiate itself in the marketplace, and put open-source equivalents into catch-up mode.
Yes, and in a competitive market there is no way that they can retain their current market share. Even the best run company in the world, with the best products, functioning in an oligopolistic market condition, would have a hard time retaining 50 percent of the market, much less 90 percent.
At some point it's all down hill for Microsoft. I shall enjoy watching that even more than the SCO debacle.
