I think "it" is already happening, witness the recent finding that M$IE
lost 1% market share (http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,116848,00.asp).
Our own web server stats, although I would never consider them
representative for the rest of thw web, kind of support this view.
The stats show that about 92% of connecting systems are running Windows,
but only 87.3% as using IE. Even the figure for netscape doesn't explain
the difference, so there must be at least a few people out there using
Mozilla/Firefox on Windoze (hhm, I could probably get exact figures by
trailing through the logs manually ...).
Sun Solaris 0.6%
