Linux It seems that each distribution has found a niche: Red Hat and Ubuntu are the leaders in their markets, and SUSE is a comfortable runner-up. However, history has shown us that businesses are not content to stay still too long or play second fiddle. So, what will Red Hat, SUSE, and Ubuntu have to do in the new year to gain new ground?

Syntactically, "said" in this instance is an adjective, not a verb. So it's not the servers said but rather said users, i.e., the "users just referred to".

Semantically, the sentence means that Canonical should attempt to use their desktop success as a means of gaining a foothold in their users' server rooms, and lock them in by giving their server customers additional desktop features not available to those who use the desktop version only.

Dubious advice IMO. Just leads to alienation of their existing base.
