"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 says."

"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."
