"...IDC analyst Dan Kusnetzky warned against reading too much in these numbers. All server operating systems, especially NT, are continuing to experience very strong growth, but the unusual Linux growth numbers are obscuring that fact."

" 'We are trying to measure Linux with the same techniques we use for other products, but that's increasingly difficult,' said Kusnetzky."

"Looking forward, IDC still expects that Windows 2000, not Linux, will be the dominant server operating system by 2003. On the desktop, the Windows 9x line and Windows NT/2000 are expected to seize a combined 88% of the market in 2003, roughly the same as today."
