these figures remind me of the Mel Gibson line in Tequila Sunrise, Mel a
drug dealer trying to go straight watches a drug bust on TV where the
reported "street" value is $100 million (or whatever it was) and says,
"yeah, which street is that?"

Apple's market share in publishing is 80%, desktop video is probably close
to that, graphics is probably 70%, film industry is close to that also. I
once was asked to leave (jokingly) by the asst dir of a movie for
mentioning Win'95.

Overall maybe it is 3.5% But as we all know, when did the 97? (+ or - .5)
ever matter?

self with powerful tools, and look good doing it.
