Surprising forecast for Linux

The Linux market has grown tremendously
as a result of support from Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Oracle, resulting
in predictions that it will soon replace other operating systems,
particularly Unix.However, despite the fact that Linux is becoming
more pervasive and has begun to move into the mainstream, particularly
with the advent of blade servers to which Linux is well suited, the
International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that Linux will not
come near to replacing the Unix and Windows operating systems in the
next three to four years.
