[News] Linux Inherits the Role of UNIX

Windows, Linux grow while Unix stays flat (but undefeated)

,----[ Quote ]
| Gartner, at its data center conference this week, said Windows is expected to 
| get $19.6 billion this year rising to $22.2 billion by 2012. Linux, 
| meanwhile, will grow from $8.6 billion to $12.2 billion over that same 
| period.   


They still measure everything in terms of money and only count brand-new
preloaded units (Linux is usually installed, even on old machines).

Putting Linux in Perspective

,----[ Quote ]
| Much like your Linux system choices of today, there were choices back in 
| 1986. In the article I looked at three versions of real UNIX (meaning 
| software licensed from AT&T) and two clones. Also, much like today, I didn't 
| come up with the one single best answer. Each had advantages and 
| disadvantages.    



Server sales turn vendors into very happy bunnies

| X86 server sales generated 50 per cent of factory revenue for the first time, 
| growing 16 per cent year on year. Sales of Windows servers grew by 14 per 
| cent annually but Linux revs were up 34 per cent.
