When Nick made the bet with me 2 months ago, he said that he hopes he loses. I am grateful to Nick because he held me accountable for the bold claims that started this blog. Indeed, Microsoft will lose majority market share by June 30, 2011. Nick has been busy moving to Pittsburgh, PA and looking for work. Maybe when he settles in we will hear more from Nick. Tonight, nick shows me two gems. 1. Yet another article which predicts the end is near for Microsoft. 2. Microsoft’s 10K filing, which is an investors report, which names Open Source as a serious competitor. Microsoft is running scared. Open source is the “intense competition.” Bring it on.
