If you don't think Windows thorougly dominates (aka monopoly) the PC world I just don't know what rock you're living under. Microsoft owns over 90% market share in the world of PCs (Mac has almost 7%). Instead of making up what you think is the case, do some actual research.

Also one cannot argue for a tablet being considered as a PC. It's a tablet. That's its own category.

I guess you think Google has a monopoly in search. Or Apple has a monopoly for tablets.

Read my post again. And I suggest you research what OS's are used for servers....

PC stand for Personal Computer. Research what the definition of that is....think about a tablet for a minute....and open your mind. Whats a netbook...and research which OS's are ran on them.

@ jroc74: I guess you don't understand how things work in technology. You don't need just a piece of hardware, but many softwares and peripheral equipments to perform any function. This thing is called ecosystem. Linux is great but it lacks an strong ecosystem to be popular and it can seriously compete with Windows only in servers where the need of an ecosystem is minimal. Mac is for high end consumer market only.

I don't have numbers but I think Windows ecosystem is more than 90% of the whole industry.

Good I Hope Apple and all of the communism IT SUPPORTS DIE . Drop 5% every quarter and we will be loving it. They dont even provide any manufacturing jobs in the US. They oputsource to india and China
