No 67, 2004 Meeting Papers from Society for Economic Dynamics
We build a dynamic model of competition between operating systems. Software applications run on each platform and are owned either by one of the OS companies or by an independent producer. Consumers are forward looking and face lock-in to an operating system due to switching costs. We also look at policy experiments such as breaking up an integrated firm into an OS provider and an application business
