Linux gaining more ground
Servers running on Linux continue to gain ground in the region, contributing 7.2 percent of the total server revenue in the region, up from 5.1 percent a year ago.Of the top five vendors, IBM continued to lead in the regions pushed by the success of its pSeries. H-P continued to lead thex86 market, with strong demand from China and Australia in particular. Sun Micro-systems' Asia-Pacific server revenue was reduced by its performance in South Korea, but the company performed well in China and Australia.
IIRC someone said that when a product hits either 10% or 15% it has reached a new growth stage and is ready to go wide on the market share.
Good to see Linux getting to at least the 10% point in that part of the world. I would love to see hard numbers for world wide.
