"My good buddy Preston Gralla would have it that
"Windows doesn't just dominate the desktop, but the server market
as well." Eh... I don't think so.
"For proof, Gralla points to the latest IDC (International Data
Corporation) Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker. This report covers
the worldwide server market's factory revenue.
"But Gralla and other critics are missing that IDC is not
measuring what server operating systems are being used; it's
measuring what server operating systems people are buying, and
those are bundled with their hardware purchases."
