Nearly all of us, the computer users, use Microsoft products and services in terms of mainly software. Microsoft has managed to keep its monopoly in the software market for the last 15-18 years. But now, people have started saying that Microsoft is now losing its grip from the market. There are now many competitors but isn`t Microsoft still performing well? Do you agree?

Though regular users like us believe that Microsoft is losing tis grip from the market, still more than 95% people use microsoft products in every section(whether it is Operating System, Word processing, Browser... everything). Ofcoure eXperienced people like u and me know there are better softwares in every section now. But Many people are yet unaware of what other fimrs and their products hav become. One thing I can say is that, Yes The end of Microsoft monoplly is beginning..But It'll take something to see that happen may be years! thats the platform they're having. Lets hope for the best Good question!

Well, yeah, my friend. I think you are right in the sense that even though Microsoft has started to lose grip from the market, it is still favorite. Rightly said , the end of Microsoft`s monopoly is beginning. But the platform Microsoft has built for itself makes me also an admirer, so i hope for something exclusive in future. Thanks for your response. Happy Mylotting!!

i think right now microsoft is stable as market trend and percentage!!Windows os for pc is still the chief for the market with more than 90% of users around the world...so i think it will be the most popular or sold for years nowadays too!!When it came out i thought that linux can destroy this leadership but after many years i think linux is still behind...

Yeah, right. I also believe that Linux has got a good chance of toppling Windows monopoly but not for many years to come. Also, please try not to respond to discussions that are either too old or resolved or both. This is a resolved discussion (best answer has been chosen already) and is around 2 years old. However, thanks for your invaluable response.
