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.

In enterprise circles, change management and automation is absolutely everything nowadays. GUI interfaces make that hard if not impossible. If I can store my entire configuration environment in a version control system, have those configurations applied automatically when they change, and have an audit trail of who, when and what changed, that is far more important that having idiot box GUI tools.

At any rate, this is all a red herring. There are GUI/Server automation tools for Linux from commercial vendors.
