Gregg Keizer, Computerworld:
Apple will steal a march on Microsoft this year when for the first time this century shipments of devices powered by its operating systems outnumber those running Windows, research firm Gartner said today.
In 2017, Apple’s combination of iOS and macOS — the former on iPhones and iPads, the latter on Macs — will take second place from Windows on the devices shipped during the year. The gap between the two will widen in 2018 and 2019, with Apple ahead of Microsoft both years.
Not terribly surprising, given the rise of mobile and Apple’s dominance in that space. But still, just a little bit satisfying.
Not clear from the article but, presumably, first place is held by Android.
