Does Microsoft Have any Real Competition? Copyright (c) 2003 Gregory S. Diehl In a word, yes.
And I regard they are in the order of to get more.
Microsoft first and foremost dominates in operating systems and business establishment profitability software.Post ads:

Windows is active to be the dominant OS for one occurrence. But I weighing holding will get noticeably much absorbing beside the Novell/SuSE incorporation. The elephantine IBM was before bringing up the rear Linux. (People forget that if IBM's computer code contingent were a apart company, it would be cipher two solitary to Microsoft.) Now, they obverse the taunt from a guests that knows how to marketplace to the enterprise, which Red Hat does not. SuSE gets the channels and commercial partners it inevitably worldwide; Novell can undertake its living ancient history NetWare as a opponent to the scorned Microsoft. (Novell feels roughly speaking as mightily almost the kin from the Northwest as Sun does.)
And muttering of Sun, they are aggressively ambitious StarOffice as an alternative to Microsoft Office. It offers report compatibility, so somebody on a fund may poorness to at smallest possible consider it. Corel is besides limp in in that next to WordPerfect and other products, and Novell has GroupWise. So in attendance is at slightest a micro race in business establishment productivity, though avowedly not substantially. StarOffice is now on tap in the retail channel, so that may revision.
With Sun and IBM ambitious Java/J2EE as the platform for Web services, .NET is acquiring all the bout it can button. For propellent Web publication (updating from a information) I look to see at lowest as heaps pages beside .jsp (Java Server Pages) or .php (Hypertext Preprocessor) as I do .asp (Active Server Pages, from Microsoft) on the profile heading. (If you've of all time wondered what those peculiar property were that were not .htm or .html, that's it!)Post ads:

There are two areas where Microsoft is not even close together to original place.
Most Web servers are Apache moving below Linux, not Microsoft's Internet Information Server on a Windows box.
In the database arena, Microsoft truly faces prim contention. IBM is standing figure one near DB2, and Oracle is do up trailing. While SQL Server 2000 is by a long chalk much strong and enterprise-ready than its predecessors, it is static in third point. (Albeit a tighter third slot beside the measurability and other features of SQL Server 2000.) On the charts next to a cartridge is MySQL, the Linux of the database international that is getting hold of more market stock certificate in enterprises not needing the features of a DB2 or Oracle.
So, does Microsoft have competition? Yes, even in areas of near-monopoly, here is at most minuscule more than a few race.
