Linux gaining on the desktop

Seems that linux keeps gaining more and more space on the enterprise and desktop. No surprise to me.

Details here

Security reasons alone, for me, would be enough to shift my department to a Linux system if I were to make that choice (the mentioned this in the China example). I shudder at the thought of secure government networks running on a windows framework with new security bugs popping up every other day. The alternative: a safe, secure, FREE and open source OS....

It's about time, and no suprise, indeed. I'm proud to say that many Boston University's PC labs use linux.

question thought:
[Linux's] share of the market has nearly doubled from 1.5% at the end of 2000 to 2.8% now. And by yearend, according to IDC, it will have surpassed Apple's (AAPL ) Mac OS, which has 2.9% of the market, as the second most popular operating system.
did anybody know if this was true (the article is about a year old)
