Hardware, Embedded Systems IDC's newest survey of server vendors shows boxes running every kind of operating system -- except Unix -- sold more during the last three months of 2010. Sales of Linux servers rose 29 percent; Windows rose 16.8 percent, but most surprisingly, sales of mainframes shot up 69 percent " the highest growth rate IDC ever found on mainframes.

That would be a whole different situation if they factored in the consumer level systems (OSX, iOS, Android, etc)

The consumer level systems which you mentioned (OSX, iOS, Android) are not servers.

Hence it seems quite understandable that they are inot shown in "IDC's newest survey of server vendors".

I got that ... I was simply noting that if they had considered iOS, OSX, Android in that equation UNIX would surely be on top.
