Linux over 7% in server world in the Asia and Pacific countries

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.
