IDC puts Linux use at 27 per cent

Author: JT Smith

The Register comments on the continuing debate over the recent Microsoft-funded Gartner study that reported Linux server sales at 8.6 percent of the total market: "...what made us
particularly dubious about the Gartner stats was that they pegged Linux usage in
supercomputer sites at zero right now.

So Lawrence Livermore Labs, Ames, CERN and many other research institutes are
clearly phantom installations."
