"Evans Data Corporation released today the second volume of its continuing Linux Developers Survey series, a comprehensive study of over 300 Linux Developers interviewed in August 2000. The study reveals there was over 50% increase of Linux applications being written for wireless devices in the last six months."

"The study looked at various implementations and found that over 50% of developers plan to develop applications for internal corporate use, and 40% are planning to create e-commerce applications. Only 20% of developers are writing applications for mobile devices; however, this number reflects over 50% increase since the Spring 2000 survey. These percentages reflect multiple response results (where developers were allowed more than one answer) and therefore do not add up to 100...

"Wireless is hot among developers now," said Janel Garvin, VP of Research at Evans Data, "but this increase among Linux developers is astounding." Wireless appplications showed the largest increase compared to apps for internal corporate use, e-commerce apps, web portals, and apps for embedded systems."
