Unix Server Sales Down

Interesting story in ComputerWorld about Unix server sales being down substantially in the first quarter of 2010. Probably no big surprise due to the economy and the Sun/Oracle situation.

An IDC report, released last month, tallied worldwide Unix revenue of $2.3 billion -- about 22% of total spending on servers -- during the first quarter of this year. The Unix share of server revenue was down 10.5 percentage points from the same quarter a year earlier.

The story didn't detail where that server revenue went. Did it go to purchase Linux servers or Windows servers? My bet is most of it went to Linux.
