Hope this is not off-topic...

Greetings! I'm a library sciences student, and at my local library I've been put in charge of the computer books section. So, I need to do a little research into the software and computer industry and was hoping you could point me in the right direction.

the W3c has some nice information about how many people are using what OS and what browser, but I'd LOVE to find a resource with information like this about other software. Like what word processing programs have what percent of the market share, etc. The hard part about this is I need a free resource.

If you know any listservs or feeds or anything that talks about software news and releases and things, that would be great too. I just need to be able to know what my patrons are using and anticipate what books I need to buy.

I appreciate any help you can give, and apologies if this is not allowed!
