No one's using Linux servers, claims Microsoft

Author: JT Smith

The Register follows up on the Gartner Group study that claims Linux has less than 9 percent of the server market. "Gartner analyst Jeffery Hewitt claims that this figure -- which includes 'white box'
shipments, but excludes server appliances such as Sun's Cobalt range -- is
dramatically lower than the 20 per cent plus cited by arch rivals IDC. Of that 8.6 per
cent, eight per cent is attributed to Red Hat and 0.6 per cent to other distros."
