News :: Linux Server Sales up a Jawdropping 90%
Linux Server Sales up a Jawdropping 90%

Statistics about dramatic Linux sales growth are numerous, but here is one of the most telling: Sales of Linux servers in the U.S. grew a jaw-dropping 90 percent in Q4 of 2002 compared with the same period the previous year, says Gartner Dataquest. And that was a period in which overall server sales inched up a mere 5 percent versus a year earlier.
