"In the latest sign that the free operating system Linux is proliferating in the solutions marketplace, more than a third of solution providers in North America are plugging in Linux solutions, according to a December 2000 study by Reality Research & Consulting."
"The research, which garnered 7,556 responses, found 41 percent of solution providers pointing to Linux as one of three primary operating systems that their company resells, specifies, recommends or approves. In comparison, 89 percent cited Windows NT Server and 48 percent named NetWare (all versions)."
"Reality also finds evidence of Linux adoption in the end-customer marketplace."
