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.

group policies

Microsoft has group policies which simplify the maintenance of large numbers of PC workstations. I think that Red Hat and Novell have their own solutions for the same problem, but I am not sure. I know that there is an Novell tool, but I am not sure what it does. Perhaps they are not advertised enough, or not easy to use ? Cfengine exists for a long time, but it is not easy to configure.

Couple of years ago major selling point for Microsoft was Office. Now I think it is automated remote administration.

The next thing might be Sharepoint.
