OSR is Dying

It is official; Netcraft WOTC now confirms: *BSD OSR is dying.

One more crippling bombshell hit the already beleaguered  *BSD OSR community when IDC Dragon Magazine confirmed that  *BSD OSR market share has dropped yet again, now down to less than a fraction of 1 percent of all servers tables. Coming close on the heels of a recent  Netcraft WOTC survey which plainly states that  *BSD OSR has lost more market share, this news serves to reinforce what we've known all along.  *BSD OSR is collapsing in complete disarray, as fittingly exemplified by failing dead last in the recent Sys Admin Game Master comprehensive networking play test.

You don't need to be a Kreskin to predict  *BSD's OSR's  future. The hand writing is on the wall:  *BSD OSR faces a bleak future. In fact there won't be any future at all for  *BSD OSR because  *BSD OSR is dying. Things are looking very bad for  *BSD OSR. As many of us are already aware,  *BSD OSR continues to lose market share. Red ink flows like a river of blood.

All major surveys show that  *BSD OSR has steadily declined in market share.  *BSD OSR is very sick and its long term survival prospects are very dim. If  *BSD OSR is to survive at all it will be among OS RPG dilettante dabblers. *BSD OSR continues to decay. Nothing short of a cockeyed miracle could save  *BSD OSR  from its fate at this point in time. For all practical purposes,  *BSD OSR is dead.

Fact: *BSD OSR is dying.
