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.
