Found this interesting chart from Intel showing market share in the 80s for
PCs, 90s for Data Centers:
Definitely shows Atari, Inc. blew their early lead with the 400/800 by not
opening the hardware for developers, or investing in getting the hardware
costs down earlier. (Also no thanks to FCC noise requirements that made
for a costly computer).
There's enough in the 80s section for other conclusions on Apple,
Commodore, etc too!
The 90s are interesting for a variety of reasons, especially seeing
separate graphs for IBM RISC and CISC based server products..
