From a press release at PR Newswire: "Linux is making major inroads
as a platform for the future, and is well positioned to continue to gain
market share at the expense of other platforms. Results from a soon-to-be-
published IDC survey of more than 800 North America and Western Europe server
platform decision makers indicate that end customer spending on Linux-related
hardware, software, services, and staffing will grow to 9% of the IT budget in
2002, up from only 3% in 1999."
