Microsoft Losing its Grip on UK Small Businesses?

,----[ Quote ]
| Put another way, according to this survey few small business in the UK intend
| upgrading to Windows 7 soon; the majority want to move to solutions
| independent of the operating system, to those based on the browser; and fully
| a third of the companies are using Firefox, not Internet Explorer, for that
| purpose.

| mirrored across the whole of the UK, because it suggests some fairly seismic
| shifts are underway in the small business sector, and that the company is
| failing on multiple fronts.
