"Companies Running Linux Increases by 95%: Demand Generates New Linux Developer Survey Series."

"Evans Marketing Services today announced that the expectation of deploying Linux apps by Development and IT Managers in large corporations increased by 75% during the last six months of 1999 and that the percent of companies running Linux increased by 95%."

"The findings are from a comparison of results of the May 1999 Enterprise Development Management Issues survey series with those in the December 1999 edition. Both surveys consisted of in-depth interviews with over 400 IT or Development Managers at corporations having more than 2000 employees. When asked in May 1999 if they expected to deploy any Linux apps in the next year, only 16.5% of the corporate IT managers said they did; however six months later 29% held that expectation."

"In addition, the number of companies running Linux on any of their servers increased from 17.5% in May 1999 to 34.2% in December 1999 -- a 95% increase. While this number includes all companies with any servers running Linux, the number of companies running Linux on more than 25% of their servers increased from less than 2% in May 1999 to almost 13% in December."
