Microsoft don't actually dominate the network software market, but they do dominate the desktop software market.

Microsoft does dominate the desktop software market as their primary product line (Microsoft Windows), is designed to be compatible with as many different computer hardware and software created by other companies. This means most things just work with Microsoft.

The other main competitors are Apple and the different types of Linux software. Apple software is designed for close integration of computer hardware and software but this means it is not compatible with many other computer hardware and software like Microsoft software does. Linux is also designed to be compatible with many different computer hardware and software but it isn't as mature as Microsoft Windows.
