The Mini OS Wars

During most of my time covering personal computers, the OS Wars were basically between Apple’s Mac OS and Microsoft’s Windows OS.
The battle between these two operating systems has been fierce at times with loyal users on each side swearing by their preferred operating system.

Then came the mobile OS wars, and while at first there were at least 4 or 5 mobile operating systems vying for supremacy, today the real battle is between Apple’s IOS and Google’s Android. But we are about to move into a new area of what I call Mini operating systems wars, designed to work with a new class of CPU’s that run devices at what is called the Edge.
