“Linux Drives Growth Significantly for Server Operating
Environments.” “The worldwide market for server operating systems,
which IDC defines as server operating environments (SOEs), grew by
25.2 percent in 1998, compared to 15.3 percent growth for
1997.”

“Linux shipments for such server tasks as Web-serving grew
rapidly, although the revenues from those shipments were just $33
million worldwide. If Linux SOE sales were not included, shipments
of all other SOEs would have grown at a rate of just 11.3%.”
