"Linux does have some traction on the server, and that's a
real issue for us," Ballmer said."
"The distinction is crucial to the case and the industry. While
Jackson ruled that Microsoft has a lock on the PC operating-system
market, a fierce battle looms in the server market, which has seen
exploding growth as more companies move to the Internet...."
"So far, Linux doesn't have a lot of traction on the client
(desktop computer), except in some university environments,"
"During the trial, Microsoft Group Vice President Paul Maritz,
the most senior executive to testify, said, "While (Linux)
certainly is being used on servers, it is also, in the majority of
cases, being used on client (personal computer) machines."
