Windows NT has cornered a 42% share of the operating systems market in India, and Microsoft Corp says this is expected to go up to 60% by the year-end. Microsoft also has a 16% in the relational database market compared to Oracle Corp’s 55%. Microsoft’s marketing manager, Sanjeev Mathur, says the firm is directly targeting Oracle’s database products with the recently launched SQL, by offering lower prices for additional users. Oracle 8 standard edition is priced at $258 per user for a minimum of five users, but the costs climb as the number of users goes up. Microsoft on the other hand is offering the SQL standard edition for $1,130 but charges $105 per additional user.
