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.

This article, sad to say is not exactly news. This has been reported in many other channels. You are looking for a conspiracy where none exists.

That would be easier to swallow if the ad/article in question wasn't covered in MS ads. I don't think it is so much a conspiracy as it is MS just up to their old tricks of purchasing lip service.

Anyone half in tune to the market would have told you that as businesses finished migrating to Linux from Unix, sales would slow down. What is so difficult to understand about this.

You cant accurately determine the market share by sales of an OS, when you can get that OS for free. What is so difficult to understand about that?

Don't get me wrong...it is possible that Linux adoption could be slowing, but trying to convince IT people to take MS's word for it could very well be an exercise in futility.
