| vendor world have done a lot to address these shortcomings, and the inroads 
| gained are plain for all to see.

,----[ Quote ]
| The survey indicates that while Windows servers are still leading in this

| there were still 38% using Linux. Even the UNIX users were not all that less
| with 25% respondents confirming UNIX deployments in their organizations.
