Krause - September 13, 2000 Event Summary According to recently figures from IDC, Red Hat was still the #1 distributor of the Linux operating system in 1999 by a wide margin, with a 48% share of the copies shipped. Trailing Red Hat were German vendor SuSE with a 15% share, and Caldera Systems and TurboLinux with 10% each. (See Figure 1) Bringing up the rear were MandrakeSoft (4%) and Corel (1%). Figure 1.

At Least It Hasn’t Been Renamed Linux 2001


Linus Torvalds and the Linux community released another test version of the Linux 2.4 kernel in late May, 2000. New features are delaying this version which was originally scheduled for October 1999.

Your Guide to OS Virtualization


Today’s information technology (IT) organizations are dealing with the consequences of exploding infrastructure complexity. At the root of the problem is uncontrolled server sprawl—servers provisioned to support a single application. Organizations that have implemented hardware virtualization have unwittingly created a new problem: operating system (OS) sprawl. IT organizations have to find ways to address this critical challenge—today.

Microsoft Readies Win2K Datacenter for Defeaturing


Microsoft has started telling the world that the Datacenter version of Windows 2000 will not only be delayed, but also is not yet scaling up to 32-processor capability as has been promised.

(The Beowulf clustering solution is reasonably well known within the Linux world, but it's not yet a Datacenter killer .) Note the wording this particular delay : we believe Linux will generally continue its growth curve, closing the market share gap between it and Windows NT/2000.
