"People expect that Unix will go away like turning a light switch, and it simply won't happen that way," IDC Research Vice President Jean Bozman told Ars. "This decline should taper to some level.

We don't expect [Unix] to disappear at all, and we haven't hit the number where it's going to plateau yet."
