Linux at 25% of Server OS Market - Is Redmond Hearing Footsteps?
Linux has now grabbed 25% of the server operating system market share, passing Novell and knocking on Windows's door.
least trying) Linux. Although Linux will almost certainly not duplicate the market shift that occurred when CDs overtook vinyl LPs, its credibility as an alternative OS is increasing. Users, both current and potential, should try to exert pressure on the key vendors to overcome the 58 varieties syndrome, as well as improving the user-friendliness. Although a number of Linux distributors have been working on improving the ergonomics, this practice must proliferate further. One possible consequence:

on how to remove Linux OS and install Windows 2000/NT4 on the newly-freed-up disk drive. Not to be outdone, Linux-philes have countered by publishing instructions on how to remove a Windows OS and replace it with Linux. To close the circle, Paul Ferris, Editor at Linux Today, highlighted the silliness by publishing his own mostly-joking piece on how to uninstall both Windows and Linux. (His directions lead to a wiped out disk drive, of course.) Market Impact Alone, these documents will have minimal

of its laptops with Linux preinstalled. The products, the Latitude CPX and the Inspiron 7500, come with Red Hat Linux 6.1 and are certified by Linuxcare. The Inspirons with Linux are available now, but the Latitudes will be available Feb. 4, according to a company representative. The move has been expected since last August. The CPX is the top-of-the-line model of Dell's Latitude line, slimmer and more expensive than the Inspirons, which are designed to be more like replacements for desktop computers.

Try to Buff Up Linux GNOME Will Try to Buff Up Linux R. Krause - September 8, 2000 Event Summary In August at LinuxWorld, the GNOME project announced five major initiatives aimed at delivering an industry-wide open user environment. These initiatives are: To establish the GNOME user environment as the unifying desktop for the Linux and Unix communities. Adoption of OpenOffice.org technologies for integration into GNOME. Integration of the Mozilla browser technology into GNOME. Industry leaders to work
IBM Pushes Linux into Appliances
IBM Corp. on Monday said its line of network computer terminals can now run on the alternative software system Linux.
believe the availability of Linux appliances will help grow the appliance markets, especially if there are cost benefits to having a free OS installed. By some estimates, appliances will outsell PCs within 3-5 years; this growth should be helped by the lower prices expected for Linux-based (vs. Windows-based) machines. User Recommendations Business users committed to Linux may want to consider Network Stations as part of a larger, corporate-wide infrastructure revamping. While having thin clients on

of Your Infrastructure The Linux operating system is free and stable, delivers solid performance, and often has good vendor support. These advantages have allowed it to garner 60 percent of the Web server market, making it popular among Web hosts as well. Yet despite the obvious advantages, Linux is not fully optimized for Web hosts because it was never designed specifically to address the unique requirements for this market. Find out more.
Caldera eDesktop Edges Out Microsoft Windows 2000 in Functionality - Part II

Application Challenges and Solutions Linux operating systems are taking the world by storm, and have seen double-digit growth rates for seven consecutive quarters. With its promise of higher performance and better stability and security, Linux has become the alternative to traditional Windows-based servers. By deploying Linux in key strategic areas and taking advantage of application publishing solutions, you can lower your costs and speed time-to-market.

big win for the Linux community. Intel's decision to reduce system costs by eliminating the license fee(s) associated with Windows means MS may be losing out on owning this potentially large market. Compaq's recent decision to use BeOS on its future Internet appliances only compounds Redmond's problems. With the Palm OS owning approximately 80% of the handheld market, with Windows CE a distant second, Microsoft risks being consigned to the middle of the market, with Unix and various enterprise-class OSe
Dell Sharpens Its Linux Focus

the key roadblocks to Linux acceptance is a lack of applications, and providing easy migration will help minimize that issue. This will help diversify the OS market, from the perspective of increasing market share of a smaller player (Linux). With an estimated 100,000 NT-based applications, this is a fertile segment for this type of product. With the growing emphasis on Linux, we expect to see increased competition between Bristol and MainSoft, resulting in increased consumer benefit. User Recommendations

necessarily good for the Linux movement - the market's OS fragmentation concern gains credence when the market leader creates a special distribution. Even with this concern, we expect this announcement will help Linux continue to increase its server volume market share (est. 25% in 1999). With Linux pre-loaded on the fastest growing segment of the server market - server appliances - by the #2 vendor in the Intel server market, we expect the growth rate to be greater than would otherwise happen.
