"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."
