From a PR Newswire press release: The U.S. multiuser system market is on course to reach $34.6 billion by 2004.
According to IDC, revenues in this market will get a boost from an unexpected source, the government, agriculture/construction, and education industries –
sectors that historically don’t spend a lot on IT. Together, these industries will account for more than 16% of the market’s revenues.

Which operating environments benefit from the growth of the U.S. multiuser system market will significantly vary. Only Linux, Windows NT, and Unix will
increase their revenues in the overall market.
