Apple It's the end of the line for Apple's line of servers, the Xserve. The Cupertino giant has just announced that the Xserve line (no more future models, either) will no longer be sold after January 31, 2011, and advises people interested in Mac OS X Server to buy either a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro with Snow Leopard Server installed.

Most figures I've read have a significant, and leading, MS market share in the enterprise server market. That really started with NT4, but it has grown ever since.

Linux is on a lot of boxes, no doubt about it, but MS has a very hefty server presence.

The whole thing is incredibly hard to count though. No Linux or Windows server I've ever encountered in that kind of environment was actually sold with an OS. X86 servers are almost always sold bare, even down at the SMB-level, much less enterprise. That really complicates getting a proper accounting. So much so, I imagine that an accurate count is plain impossible.
