BSD system takes on Linux

Author: JT Smith

From a story at Inter@ctive Week: Both Linux and BSD are growing faster as server systems on the Internet than their competitors, including Microsoft's Windows NT and Windows 2000 combined, according to Nancy Stewart, senior analyst at Survey.com, an Internet market research firm that surveys information technology executives on their purchasing plans. In addition, Linux and FreeBSD, an open-source version of the BSD OS, are expected to grow 177 percent as Web server systems by the end of 2001, Stewart says, compared with a loss of 7 percent for Windows NT/2000 and a loss of 11.2 percent for proprietary Unix, such as Hewlett-Packard's HP-UX and Sun Microsystems' Solaris."
