"...In the Linux server market, Compaq is the leader,
with $119 million in sales for the quarter--a 14.4 percent decrease
from the $139 million in the year-ago quarter. No. 2 Dell increased
33.9 percent from $59 million to $79 million, while No. 3 IBM
increased the most, 39.5 percent from $43 million to $60 million,
IBM has embarked on a major campaign to boost Linux across its
four major server lines.
The Windows server market, with $2.9 billion in sales for the
quarter, remains larger than the Linux market's $415 million."
