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.

As far as money is concerned, it is easy enough to track Microsoft sales, less so Linux sales just because some -many?- servers are just free...

Sometimes, you just buy support...or nothing and just multiply or increase your previous deployment.

So, I am very sceptical about these so called studies. But, I am not denying though that for now MS is still very healthy and wealthy.

I just use Linux now and more and more people do it, year after year. This is a FACT and a world trend.
