Surprising forecast for Linux
Monday April 05, 2004 - [ 07:01 PM GMT ]
Topics: Linux , Software , Operating Systems

The Linux market has grown tremendously as a result of support from
Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Oracle, resulting in predictions that it will
soon replace other operating systems, particularly Unix.However, despite
the fact that Linux is becoming more pervasive and has begun to move into
the mainstream, particularly with the advent of blade servers to which
Linux is well suited, the International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts
that Linux will not come near to replacing the Unix and Windows operating
systems in the next three to four years.
