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.

Heh... well somehow I had not seen the disclaimer. Funny. I must be overworked. ;)

Anyways, the "articles" is more paid advertisement than anything else. One thing is however correct: Migrating to Linux servers can not continue forever as there is only a certain number of machines running. So no surprise here. But interpreting the slowdown of Linux migration as a loss of market share to Windows-Servers is not really a sign of intelligence.
