PC Expo: "Users Say Life Would Be OK Without Microsoft"

Door , 0 reacties, bron: Techweb

Techweb heeft een artikeltje gepost over de PC Expo, waar ze ff een poll hebben gedraait over hoe de gemiddelde IT-bobo over Mikrosoft denkt:

In a random poll conducted Thursday among corporate information technology workers, users expressed little loyalty to the Redmond, Wash.-based software maker in the antitrust case brought by the U.S. Department of Justice. That case was expected to complete the final day of the trial stage Thursday.

The Justice Department has charged that Microsoft abused its near-monopoly in PC operating systems to extend its dominance in the browser market.

A possible outcome of the trial could involve a breakup of the company, which has five high-tech operating units involved in the computer hardware, software, test and measurement, and telecommunications industries.

"It would allow smaller companies a chance to get into people's desktops."

"If Microsoft loses, it won't be a major issue," Mullan said. "It would open up the market to smaller companies that care more and pay more attention to detail."

If Microsoft is broken up, there will be others to fill in the gap, said Owen Long, the owner of the Doctor Data consultancy in Brooklyn. "There are plenty of people just waiting for it to happen," he said.

"There are 20 companies just waiting to get into their space," said Richard Lederman, a computer programmer at Credit Lyonaise Bank in New York. "And there would be four new Microsoft companies out there doing just what [Microsoft chairman] Bill Gates did."
