:> by IDC and was estimated at 6.8% of the server operating system
:> market, after NT, Novell NetWare, and "Unix" :-)

:More seriously do you have a URL to the IDC one ?
:
It is not yet on the site (so it appears) but it was in the
last page of today's Newspaper.

The numbers were:
        36.0%: Windows NT
        26.4%: Netware (Novell)
        20.0%: Unix
        6.8%:  Linux
        6.3%:  OS/2
        3.8%:  Other

(It adds to 99.3% probably due to last digit rounding)

What's no less important, I feel, is that Linux is the _only_
alternative OS to MS that actually _grew_, all the rest lost
market share to Microsoft.
