January 2003 survey from 35,424,956 sites. Although this represents

November, it is still greater than October's all-time low of 35.1

referred to as iPlanet in the survey) remained the key players with
shares of 62.23 percent, 27.49 percent, 2.08 percent, and 1.33
percent, respectively. The top vendors once again retained their

market share (by a mere 0.21 percent). Microsoft's, Zeus' and
SunONE's market shares remained flat.
"NT-specific servers accounted for 27.72 percent of servers
