According to media reports, the market research firm Forrester said in a report, affected by the Google Android and Apple iOS operating systems, smart phones and tablet PCs make Microsoft computing device operating system market share decline to about 30% from approximately 70% 4 years ago.

In order to reverse the decline of the operating system market share, Microsoft will release Windows 8 system later this week. The era of Microsoft’s dominant operating system market has passed and the operating system market will be divided by a number of companies.

Forrester vice president and principal analyst Frank Gillett said, “The operating system market will not be dominated by an operating system, or a company in future, Microsoft is too late to entry into the mobile market and has lost the dominant position.” Despite unlike RIM, Palm and Nokia slipped into a spiral, but Windows is no longer the king of the computing device operating system.

Windows market share decline was mainly due to large numbers of mobile devices running Android and iOS systems. Android will continue to lead the smartphone market, while Apple’s iOS software will continue to dominate the tablet market, Microsoft will continue to control the PC market.

Gillett said, “Despite a dominant position in the smartphone market, we believe that Google has missed the opportunity to develop in the Android Tablet PC market. The Android platform Tablet PC applications are not enough. Nexus 7 have some help, but there is no evidence that Google has had a major turning point in the Tablet PC market. Windows will have some success in the Tablet PC market, to reach 27% market share in 2016, due to the large PC user base, close relationship with corporate IT departments, Android Tablet pc is not strong enough. ”

Enterprises will be required to face three different types operating systems, rather than just an operating system of Microsoft. The main reason for this problem is employees use their own smart phones and tablet PCs in the workplace.
