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.

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

No UNIX wouldn't as Android is Linux and Android outsells iOS.

Plus your point is completely irrelevant anyway as this discussion is about servers not mobile phones.

I mean, if we really want to count irrelevant figures, then why aren't router firmware and sat navs included either. In fact, I'm pretty sure my DVD player runs an OS too. :p
