Vista Will Become the Dominant OS in 2009

Windows Vista is scheduled for consumer availability in six days. However, the latest operating system from Microsoft will have to displace Windows XP from its dominant position on the  market. This because Windows Vista’s main rival is not Mac OS, or Mac Intel or Linux. Microsoft’s own Windows XP is the sole factor that stands before Windows Vista and the lion’s share of the operating system market.

In this context, analyst Gartner has forecasted that Vista will not become the dominant presence on the OS market until 2009.
