What’s a monopoly again?

So apparently its only a monolopy at 90% share if its against Microsoft according Brad Smith one of Microsof’t’s top lawyer (according to the article)  So Microsoft is all up in arms that it isn’t fair that Google and Yahoo can have a deal that would supposedly give them 90% market share.

This leaves me wondering.  So, typically people claim well Microsoft it the better product why else would they have ~90% market share.  References you ask…  Well you’re in luck.

(Some dates are old)

Wikipedia ~90%

WindowsITPro  ~93%

OneStat.com ~97.5%

Market Share by Net Applicatoins ~91%

Yes I know this isn’t the greatest list or maybe even a good list, but well you get the idea.  If you have better links or to the contri then post them in a comment.

  1. Microsoft’s search engine at least has sucked majorly. No wonder they have miniscule market share on that front…

    However, Windows has been extremely good. Not technically, but it really doesn’t matter with operating systems. The overall product is what matters instead.
