Why the Microsoft Windows Dominance is Finally Over

Smartphones and tablets have knocked Microsoft’s share of computing device operating-system sales from about 70% four years ago to about 30% today, according to a new report by Forrester Research.

To push back against that trend, Microsoft is releasing Windows 8 later this week, an updated operating system that adds a tablet sheen to its traditional operating system.

It’s a bold move, but in reality, the era of Microsoft’s dominance has passed and the market is destined to be split among multiple players, said Forrester.
