BW: ...Survey Reveals Continued Dominance... by Microsoft through 2001 Despite Linux ChallengeFeb 21, 2000, 19:25 (16 Talkback[s])
"Comprehensive Survey of Over 2,200 Decision Makers in Private Industry, Education, and Government Demolishes Linux 'Windows-killer' Myth
Survey.com, the leading eResearch services company, announces that results of the first survey in the Open-Source UNIX Research Initiative reveal no serious threat to Microsoft's dominance of enterprise computing, both on servers and desktop, through 2001.
Although open-source UNIX (OSU), especially Linux, will make astonishing gains over the next two years -- between 100% and 700% gain in server share on eight major enterprise server applications, Microsoft Windows NT/2000 will maintain between a 30% and 65% server share on these same applications. This compares to a server share of around 10% or less for OSU on most of these applications. The study also shows that open-source UNIX will have the most impact among smaller companies, while Microsoft's server share continues to grow among the largest enterprises. (View corresponding graph on our website at http://www.survey.com/datapoint_2000-02-14.html.)"
"The Open-Source UNIX Research Initiative is a joint effort of Survey.com and Enterprise Linux Magazine, designed to deliver solid primary market research about the adoption of OSU."
