Windows Microsoft Windows captured the lead for the first time in server operating systems during the third quarter, boosted by continued demand for inexpensive servers selling for less than $25000 (EUR 21190), according to a new report.

I wonder how many of these Windoes Server 20003 sales were direct replacements for Windows NT/2000 boxes. IMHO, probably quite a few. One place I worked at recently just replaced a whole bunch of NT4 boxes with Server 2003. They junked the old HW and got new boxes. So, there are direct replecements.
What would be more intersting would be the numbers of totally new systems.
And it has to be said, we don't really know how many Linux Servers there really are do we.
