It’s funny, I’ve never even heard of “third platform”. I’m not surprised by the numbers though. These technologies are all the rage. I suspect the reasoning behind PC and Ethernet stagnation is that many businesses already have that infrastructure in place and, perhaps, they’re not spending additional money on new technologies. But who really knows? Hey at least we can count on the analysts and product vendors to continually create new fluff terms and keep people like me on our toes.
