Question:  At what rate is the market overall increasing.
Based on Red Hat information, their revenues are still going up
an average of 10-15%/month (100% increase per year), but their
market share is dropping.  In 1998, they sold 4 million actual
copies of Linux, if they have doubled in 1999 and are selling
roughly 1/12 of 8 million copies each year (750,000 copies/month)
and they are only getting 31% of the market that means the linux
market is .75/.32 or 2.3 million copies per month.

Keep in mind that these are domestic sales only.  SuSE is much
bigger in Europe.

What was the market share for Turbo Linux?

: PCData Linux US Retail Market Share

:  Units Share - Top 5 Company November/99 December/99 January/00

: Red Hat     50.2%    35.3%    31.8%     (decreasing)
: Macmillan   30.6%    30.3%    27.4%     (decreasing)
: Corel        2.4%     5.2%    14.3%     (increasing)
: S.U.S.E.     1.0%    10.0%    12.9%     (increasing)
: Caldera      9.8%     5.2%     3.6%     (decreasing)

But what about the total units sold?

The market share of Red Hat (for example) may be decreasing
even though the company may be expanding - others would
simply be expanding faster.  So, is the total pie getting
larger or are certain slices of that pie getting smaller?

Judging by the total bombardment of the Red Hat mirrors
following the 6.2 release, I'm inclined to believe that
Corel and SuSE are simply growing much faster than the
rest.  That's definately a Good Thing.
