Re: Screw OneDrive, when are they gonna fix WINDOWS????
OS Market share?
Do you mean desktops? might be 1%
Servers? Has to be rather higher? Wikipedia quote a finger of 36% for web servers, for what its worth.
Total sales? Linux probably outsold Windows last year thanks to all those phones, set top boxes, printers, routers, NAS boxes and the trillion and one other sorts of things that run Linux that don't look like a PC. Android sales are about 250M/y while PC sales managed 75M/y.
So it looks like Linux is used by more than 1% of us.
Most people run Windows on their PCs because they have no real choice. When people are given a choice very few people chose Windows, I mean look at the phone market place, what did Windows manage here? Did they manage 2.5% market share? and that's despite tons of TV advertising and trying to buy market share.

Re: What's starting to worry me...
iPhones/iPads are essentially fashion accessories and as such will be here today gone tomorrow must haves. While they appeal to the cool kids today they'll go the same way as shoulder pads and flairs when the winds of fashion change.
New design needed
What they really need to do is to update the basic design on the iPad, mine is looking so dated these days, I mean look at the little screen and great big surround, at least in black it doesn't look quite as shabby as the white ones, but they're starting to look like an old fashioned telly. Surely they should be aiming to take the screen to within a millimeter or so of the edges. The damn surrounding is just wasted space.
