Netcraft confirms it.

dying.sh:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
if [ x$1 = x ]
	then echo "Useage: $0 subject"
else
tail -n 9 $0 | sed s/%%THING%%/$1/g
fi
exit

Netcraft confirms it: %%THING%% is dying.

Yet another crippling bombshell hit the already beleaguered %%THING%% community today when Ars Technica [arstechnica.com] (and Netcraft) confirmed that %%THING%% sold more than %%THING%% for the week ending April 24th. Coming on the heels of a recent survey which indicated people like saving money when buying a computer this news serves to reinforce what we've known all along: %%THING%% is collapsing in complete disarray.

You don't need to be a Kreskin [amazingkreskin.com] to predict %%THING%%'s future. The hand writing is on the wall: %%THING%% faces a bleak future. In fact there won't be any future at all for %%THING%% because %%THING%% is dying.Things are looking very bad for %%THING%%. Their offices are dark, the tomb-like sepulchral atmosphere is all that remains. %%THING%% continues to lose market share, red ink flows like a river of blood.

The %%THING%% development team is also dead, its corpse turned over to yet another charnel house. All major surveys show that %%THING%% has steadily declined in market share. %%THING%% is very sick and its long term survival prospects are very dim. If %%THING%% is to survive at all it will be among OS dilettante dabblers and hangers-on. %%THING%% continues to decay. Nothing short of a miracle could save it at this point in time. For all practical purposes, %%THING%% is dead.

Fact: %%THING%% is dying
