Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"LINUX will be the fastest growing software platform, with
its market earnings tipped to increase by 33 per cent over the next
four years to $US3.39 billion, a Salomon Smith Barney report
"The company's September Server and Enterprise Hardware and PC
Hardware Quarterly says Windows NT systems will garner 21 per cent
market growth - the second largest gain - in the period from 1999
to 2004, earning Microsoft $US31.79 billion."
"The gains by Linux and NT come at the expense of operating
systems including OS/390 and NetWare, which are expected to see a 5
per cent and 11 per cent decline in revenue growth respectively for
the same period."
