Is Linux Slipping?
While Linux has doubled it's share in the desktop market, a recent report from IDC says that Linux is losing out to Windows on x86 servers.
According to reports, Linux growth has dropped from a 2003 high of +57% down to to -6% 2006. Some sources suggest, however, that the high growth was due to conversions from Unix to Linux, and that the fast growth was due for a slowdown once large-scale conversions were complete. Other sources point out that IDC tracks the OS installed on new systems, while Linux is often installed on systems after they are received, or on recycled hardware, which likely skews the numbers.
