[News] GNU/Linux Runs in 47% of Shops

The Perfect Purchase Cycle: Server OS Software

| But 47 per cent are running Linux and 52 
| per cent are running Unix â and that means 
| theyâre running multiple operating systems. 
| âUnlike the desktop, itâs not a zero-sum 
| game,â said Darin Stahl, lead analyst with 
| Info-Tech Research Group. In companies with 
| less than 100 employees, 78 per cent are 
| only running Microsoft â but they may be 
| running multiple versions. The more 
| servers, the more we start to see Linux and 
| Unix.


Global stock exchanges enter âtechnology arms raceâ

| Unsurprisingly perhaps, IBMâs low-latency 
| messaging and analytics technologies are of 
| major use in this sector â and many of 
| these new super fast systems are running 
| Linux.
| But would something simple such as file 
| format incompatibilities restrict the 
| widespread deployment of Linux even further 
| throughout the financial services sector so 
| that it sat on literally thousands of 
| desktops? A little research told me that 
| there is a conference every year called 
| Linux on Wall Street for those who want to 
| listen to speakers weigh up the various 
| virtues of IBMâs offerings versus the likes 
| of SUSE Linux Enterprise from Novell. IBM 
| has in fact operated a âLinux Centerâ in 
| Manhattan since 2002, so the market may be 
| bigger than many of us think.

| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."
