Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Experts say that migrations from Unix to Linux have slowed down because all the low-hanging fruit has now been picked. Linux growth in the U.S. x86 server market has, over the past six quarters, started to falter and reverse its positive course relative to Windows Server and the market as a whole." More here.

My god, I was reading about this a year ago in an article about Novell.

In Novell's world, this has been going on for years, and years, and years. No, it isn't news at all. This is why Novell decided to get into the Linux world, as Netware had continued to decline, in order to bolster their market share and revenue, and given the fact that they just hadn't got the resources to push Netware to where it needed to be.

What have Novell done in the past four years with respect to the competition? Other than not actually compete with their competitors and sign a deal with said competitor that says "Pretty please, don't hurt us!", they have done absolutely nothing.
