Apple - Mac: Firm expects Apple to grab 4% US market share
market Share While Apple's previous Mac OS X releases did not boost its share of the personal PC market, Tiger's 200 new features coupled with the ongoing iPod halo effect should pave the way to rosier results this time, says Merrill Lynch.

The research and investment firm believes Tiger sales could top $100 million in its first quarter of release, consistent with an earlier analyst report that suggested first quarter Tiger sales could possibly double that of Panther, which grossed approximately $60 during its first quarter on the market in 2003.

*NIX - UNIX: Switch to Linux slow start, will pick up speed soon
market Share In the course of a decade, Linux has developed from a small hobby operating system to a massive giant. Linux has been embraced by many for just about as many diverse reasons. Computer enthusiasts have been the oldest supporters of Linux, using the constantly developing OS as a desktop workstation.

Additionally, Linux can be seen in the embedded market through its use in routers, TiVo devices, VoIP phones, and other types of devices. Linux has also been accepted by many large corporations as their primary server operating system. In order to grow, however, Linux developers must target the typical home computer user as well as the typical corporate desktop.

Apple - Mac: Analyst: Demand for Mac & iPod Strong; Apple Improves Supply
market Share Demand for Apple Computer's Mac and iPod product lines remains strong, according to a Wall Street analyst. In a research obtained by The Mac Observer, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster told clients that decreasing lead times for Apple's products, coupled with continued demand vis-à-vis Amazon's Top Seller lists, shows that Apple has improved its ability to supply product, and not that demand is slacking.

Apple - Mac: Fuzzy math in Apple harvest?
market Share Apple Computer saw its personal computer shipments jump considerably during the first quarter, as we reported Friday. The numbers got even better this week. That's because IDC, which published its first quarter PC shipment figures last Friday, left out a chunk of Apple shipments from its U.S. tally. It said at the time that Apple turned out 450,000 units in the United States during the quarter.

But on Monday it quietly revised that figure upward to 565,000. The increase in Apple's unit shipments bumped it up to a 3.9 percent share of the market, making it the fifth largest computer maker in the U.S. for the quarter

Apple - Mac: Apple Growth?
market Share There have been some pretty rosy predictions of Apple growth, but some folks, including me, have some questions. There is no doubt that Apple turned in a great quarter. Ernest Truro has some very good graphs on his nesty.blog. His "return of the mac" post shows two consecutive quarters of 1M+ Macs. If we figure that Apple can maintain this type of growth (34% in the first half), Apple would end up shipping approximately 4.4M Macs this year. Given that, what does the total computer market look like?

*NIX - UNIX: Novice PC users more likely to embrace Linux
market Share Linux advocates hoping to convert Windows users to the open source operating system are more likely to succeed with technophobes and very inexperienced computer users than with Windows power users.

In a report published by research and analysis firm Quocirca, entitled "Migrating to Linux on the Desktop", the company found not only was it a myth that you had to be a power user to cope with Linux, the complete opposite is true.

*NIX - UNIX: Linux Growth Hits Windows Roadblock
market Share Windows is standing ground despite the growing popularity of Linux among small and medium sized businesses. The key findings in an independent study published by Yankee Group are that Linux is more likely to be run parallel with Windows rather than displace its installed base.

Apple - Mac: Tiger: The growth engine [Updated]
market Share CNN Money is saying that the upside for Apple this year is still great. Moreover, unlike previous calls to invest in Apple it's not the iPod that's predicted to be the only engine driving revenues and profits.

"Tiger could drive a new hardware cycle and that's pretty significant," said Shaw Wu, American Technology Research. He adds that sales of Macs, which are more profitable than iPods, still make up nearly half of Apple's total revenues.

Update: PiperJaffray is reporting that Apple's OS X 10.4 Tiger operating system software, which has not been released yet, was the number 1 seller in the Software Top Seller category on Amazone.com.

Apple - Mac: Return of the Mac
market Share All the best hackers I know are gradually switching to Macs. My friend Robert said his whole research group at MIT recently bought themselves Powerbooks. These guys are not the graphic designers and grandmas who were buying Macs at Apple's low point in the mid 1990s. They're about as hardcore OS hackers as you can get.

The reason, of course, is OS X. Powerbooks are beautifully designed and run FreeBSD. What more do you need to know?

Apple - Mac: Microsoft, Apple and the Betamax effect
market Share The US government proved that Microsoft illegally exploited monopoly power in the “antitrust case of the century” They have an OS that just doesn't want to get finished and a V1.00 browser called Firefox that's nipping at its heels and highlighting major security flaws in the Windows armour.

In stark contrast, Apple’s share of the US desk top computers market was up by half from 2003 to 2004. Over the two year period commencing March 18, 2003, Microsoft shares rose 5.3 per cent; Apple’s 373 per cent. Are these signs of a historic shift in power?
