"The most aggressive expansion plans for Linux deployments will
come from small companies and large organizations over the next
year, according to a new research report from Zona Research Inc.
The report, released late Wednesday, follows a Zona study
deployed via the Web in September that involved 109 IT
professionals with purchase authority for Internet connectivity,
application development tools and server software."
"It found that more than half of the large enterprise
respondents expected increases of up to 25 percent in the number of
Linux users in their firm, while nearly one-fifth expected
increases of more than 50 percent. Among small-company
representatives, more than one-third felt Linux usage would expand
by 50 percent or more."
"The report, entitled "The New Religion: Linux and Open Source,"
also found that more than half of the respondents currently use
Linux servers for e-mail, file and print services, intranet
connection servers, standard Web servers and firewalls. Some 38
percent of respondents use it as a database server, while 21
percent use it for e-commerce applications."
