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.

Wow. *If* it's true, that's a lot folks, no matter how you cut it. And no mention of FreeBSD at all...

Anyone cares to provide a different (credible, of course) source of statistics?


Here's another opinion, coming directly from beloved EU:


At the start of the commission's antitrust investigation in 1999, the agency said Microsoft's share of the worldwide work-group server market was between 35 percent and 40 percent. That share rose to about 60 percent between 2001 and 2003. The current share is about 75 percent, the commission said.

So.. I'd say, number is correct.. give or take some..

And that is exactly why EU forced MS to "open" its protocols.
