    GATES NEEDS CASH TO BUY COREL SHARES!

    It's a shrinking market anyway. I see the OS
    market going in four major directions:
    1. Set Top
    Box
    2. Handheld devices/cellphones
    3.
    workstations
    4. servers

    The X-Box, Windows CE, Windows ME
    and Windows 2000 will gain significant market share
    in each IMHO.

    Linux will get its share, but
    it won't be from VA Linux or Red Hat or any other
    major vendor. They will be "home growns" based on the
    Linux platform.

    the "home growns" won't be able
    to keep pace with innovations. They will be forced
    to convert to Microsoft or Microsoft's
    Linux.


    Long on MSFT, short on Red Hat, VA Linux and Corel!!!
