AsiaBizTech: Nikkei Computer’s annual survey on corporate customer satisfaction ranks free UNIX tops

“In terms of “comprehensive satisfaction” of PC servers by type
of operating system, the highest points were gained by machines
using the Intel version of UNIX. Although the number of responses
with this type of UNIX machine was not large (at 104), the degree
of satisfaction expressed (64 points) is a point higher than that
of the No. 2 ranked machine running Windows NT (the number of
responses for which was 1,714).”

“In the survey, no questions were asked on product names of the
Intel version of UNIX. However, it seems reasonable to assume that
many of the responses should refer to free UNIX such as Linux and
FreeBSD, because there have been few deliveries of Intel versions
of UNIX for commercial use in Japan.”
