In the News So, what to do with this. If we don't run it, we're pro-Linux. If we do run it, we're pro-Microsoft. And I'm sure that whatever we do, we're anti-Apple somehow. In any case, here we go: the latest market share figures from IDC about servers show that Windows is by far the most popular server operating system in terms of unit sales, increasing its market share even further. Linux, on the other hand, saw its market share in the server market sink a little.

I'm glad you included the 'pre-installed' software reference in your article. But is this article really necessary? Server sales info like this is primarily PR stuff, and not an accurate gauge of actual, real-world presence. Stats on what operating systems are moving data around online and in various companies are really matter.
