As those of us who have worked for years in the information technology industry especially on the development side certainly have not anyone within the industry itself who have actually said this!
I suspect it is one of these myths perpetuated by Microsoft itself and those high up in the information technology industry who fell for the marketing of Microsoft or even blatantly bribed by them.
The real truth is Microsoft Windows has always been and will be one of large number of personal computer to mainframe operating systems used by the information industry and it’s customers. The only reason it has even become more important that it actually is, is because of general public perception du to lack of choice in the retail market.
All very cleaver on Microsoft’s part but far from the truth as Windows is one of many operating system not the industry standard used by the information industry!
