The Unix market overall is shrinking but calling it dead is far from the truth.
The proper term is "zombie", I believe. This is lock-in schemes at work. Think War of Currents: AC distribution networks won back in XIX century yet some customers still bought elecricity from DC networks in XXI century!
UNIX may linger for similar amount of time, but it's relevance is the same: existing customers keep the thing alive, but there are few (if any) new users.
