UNIX still a hit for mission-critical systems

,----[ Quote ]
| The majority of companies using UNIX will be 
| sticking with it for their mission-critical 
| systems, even though use of the operating 
| system has declined in recent times.
| Almost two-thirds running UNIX-based 
| platforms will keep them, in comparison to 
| the 38 per cent who will be dumping the 
| platform in the next three years, according 
| to a survey from Coleman Parkes Research on 
| behalf of HP.
