"As Stephen O'Grady, a RedMonk analyst said in a
statement, "The popularity of Ubuntu evidenced by the survey is not
surprising to those who cover the Linux market. What was surprising
was the breadth of workloads that Ubuntu is servicing. Far from
being relegated to a niche role, the distribution is being
leveraged for a variety of enterprise tasks, from the mundane to
the mission critical."
"The almost 7,000 users who took the survey were also sure that
Ubuntu wasn't just capable of doing these jobs; Ubuntu was already
great at doing them. 90%+ of them are already using Ubuntu for
their mission-critical jobs."
