"Software Wars" map updated

Andy Tai writes "The "Software Wars" map has just been updated!

The "Software Wars" map shows the state of the software world in a graphical form. Since 1998, it has been periodically updated to reflect changes in the software industry, the antitrust trial, Microsoft's dominance with respect to the rest of the industry and the growing popularity of the Free Software/Open Source movement. The latest update, from August 10, incorporates the SCO lawsuits and the reactions from IBM, Red Hat and the GNU/Linux community. "A picture is worth a thousand words", and you will find this image shows an interesting perspective on current events:-)
