Baloney, roy. From the IDC numbers, MS and Unix have roughly a third of
the market each and Linux, Netware, and IBM Mainframes have a third of
the remaining third. Doubtless there are some other poor boys in the
group with next to no share each. That puts linux a distant third,
fourth, or fifth depending on where the bones land each quarter. That
is after they have shot their main wad with the IBM and HP/Dell push.
Linux may continue to erode unix business, but it is taking nothing from
Windows which continues to grow itself.
