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.

And how they count it?
Red Hat sells service, not linux alone.
Linux is way cheaper and upgrade is free.
They count several times windows servers as each upgrade generate revenue, while only one Linux installation may (or may not) generate revenue for Red Hat.
At the end of the day, they don't explain how they calculate their number, so as far as I can say, it's total crap.
