"Linux share of the Japanese server OS market grew a
staggering 666.3 per cent last year, market research company IDC
"Of course, that doesn't imply the open source OS dominates the
market now. According to IDC Japan's numbers, by the end of 1999,
Linux accounted for only four per cent of the server OS market, up
from 0.7 per cent the previous year."
"Still it's growth rate is way ahead of the market as a whole,
which expanded some 32.1 per cent to 419,399 licences, some 16,858
of which were for Linux. The OS has some way to go to catch up with
Windows NT's 81.3 per cent share, but if that rate of growth can be
maintained or even exceeded. Other varieties of Unix account for
10.1 per cent of the Japanese server OS market."
