Linux is positioned to participate in market demand for
Internet servers because of its installed base, low cost, and
stable operation. Previously, open software systems have not been
able to build market demand.
Linux, however, is building
considerable demand in the market for the operating system and
associated applications by virtue of its usefulness to ISP
providers to run Internet e-mail systems. As a scalable operating
system, Linux promises to fill a void in e-commerce markets for a
stable, low end, transaction based operating system. Linux
operating system and applications are expected to further
evolve.”

on Linux. By going up the value chain, market participants enhance
the usefulness and value of Linux. By extending the reach of the
system, the market participants leverage the effectiveness of
it.”
