I have question:
Year after year, I read from "reliable" sources (like IEEE, IDC, etc)
about OS/2 marketshare. It seems decent, but everyone, or at least the
press, likes to pretend that OS/2 has rolled over and died.
So just where exactly is OS/2 being used/sold?
Take for example this article:
Yes, it's a UNIX article, but in the middle of the report, you'll see a
table for _1998_ of all _NEW_ licenses shipped.
OS/2 ranks right up there with...Linux. Sure, granted, a lot of Linux
installs aren't registered or licensed, but check out the other numbers.
OS/2 shipped nearly 1/3 the licenses of ALL UNIX COMBINED. You can't tell
me that's a small market!
Earlier this year, I remember 2 of the big Anti-Virus guys fighting it out
for the OS/2 users when IBM sold off it's AV software...Were they fighting
What is this? Fake data? Active opposition to OS/2 or what the heck?
Maybe all OS/2 licenses go into some great, big black hole where people
buy the OS, but never any applications?
