"According to IDC Japan's latest stats, for the Japanese server
OS arena, Linux will account for 7.8 per cent of the market come
the end of 2000. That's due to a 144.4 per cent increase on the
number of shrinkwrapped or bundled copies of the open source
operating system shipped during the year."
"That compares with the 666.3 per cent growth rate Linux saw
during 1999, when the OS leapt from 0.7 per cent of the server
market at the start of the year to four per cent 12 months
"The Japanese server market as a whole is set to grow 26.9 per
cent this year, IDC reckons, so Linux is clearly steaming ahead
even if not quite as fast as before. And last year's explosive
growth was more a result of coming from next to nothing than a true
measure of increasing interest in its usage, year on year."
