Windows 7 might kill Snow Leopard

Written by Nick Farell

According to Google Trends


If you
are interested in playing with Google Trends you might work out that Windows 7 is getting more interest than Snow Leopard.

When Apple released Snow Leopard, Google hardly noticed the fact, however when Windows 7 was released there was a huge spike in figures. This interest has hardly gone away where as Snow Leopard... well let's just say the interest is fairly flat.

Some have seen this as proof that when Windows 7 comes out, those people who might have gone for Snow Leopard are going to be more interested in Redmond's latest. This is unlikely as fan boys will buy what ever Steve Jobs tells them is great. They have done this for years and would stick a dog turd in their expensive machines and praise it to the skies if Steve told them it was great.

What these figures show is that that Mac OS X never really mattered at all. Its market share was too tiny and too niche to make even a dent in Microsoft's monopoly. In short Apple were is an expensive toy in a Redmond world.

But that statement is equally abhorrent to Apple fanboys who really believe that OSX has a larger chunk of the desktop market than any sane person believes.

It is a pity that Linux was not better equipped to deal with what will be Microsoft's second coming, but it seems that the world has missed that chance and we will have to wait years before anything gets the chance to unseat Redmond from its throne.
