Today's state of the affairs is nearly identical to what PCs had twenty years ago.
Remember these days? Amiga, BeOS, GEM (on Atari and on PC), Mac OS, OS/2 and RISC OS (from Acron) - and these are only "big boys"! There were smaller contenders (like DESQview/X or OPEN LOOK), too!
All so cool, all so hip, all so promising, all so… dead. After Windows 3.1 release it was only matter of time. They all have died, only MacOS managed to survive (barely) because it was so entrenched and Microsoft at some point become complacent and have not killed it when it had the chance.
Today situation is similar. All the systems mentioned are already dead except for Android and iOS. The only hope for Microsoft and others at this point are lawsuits. Nokia had the ability to play this game while Jolla does not have legal resources to survive.
