"Linux adoption in the Asia-Pacific region has grown significantly in the last year, with 15 percent of the region's companies having servers that run on Linux, according to a Gartner Inc. survey of 850 corporations in Asia.

The number of current Linux users has been growing rapidly. In September, about 13 percent of companies in Asia were Linux users, compared to about only 6 percent to 7 percent one year ago, said Phil Sargeant, Sydney-based research director for servers and storage at Gartner.

Continued Linux growth in the region will depend on the types of applications that are made available for the Linux platform, Sargeant said. As more "sizable software organizations are putting their weight behind Linux, with more applications for Linux," there might be greater Linux adoption, he said."
