Time to upgrade open source perceptions of Gartner

,----[ Quote ]
| This resulted in some suggesting that 
| Gartner's research was simply a reflection 
| of which companies paid it the most money 
| (and recently netted the analyst firm a 
| lawsuit).
| I made similar accusations myself.
| Gartner responded to such attacks, 
| defending the integrity of its research. 
| Yet its blind spot to open source seemed to 
| persist.


Microsoft and SAP lagging on open source

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft and SAP are falling behind when 
| it comes to taking advantage of open source 
| technology, despite cut-throat competition 
| in the enterprise software market, a new 
| analysis by Gartner has found.


Switching to FOSS saves money? MS begs to differ



Why IDC-Novell survey is a dud

,----[ Quote ]
| The conclusion reached by IDC is quite simple: companies that are already
| using Linux are deploying more of the free operating system as times become
| tough. Period. Even a gun for hire cannot come up with something more
| pleasing to the ears of the sponsor of a survey.
| [...]
| Here's IDC again: "The economic downturn of 2009 will be a demarcation line
| that is likely to highlight an acceleration toward adoption of standardized
| (sic) architecture across the industry. The standardization (sic) layers will
| include standardized (sic) blade chassis, x86 servers, Linux, and
| virtualization (sic) software."
| But this was exactly what has been happening ever since the start of the
| millennium. Linux on commodity hardware has been dominating the server
| space - we don't need IDC to tell us that. The trend has never varied.
| So where is the story?
