Despite everything, more than 75% of NEW projects in major
corporation are all Linux based. At this rate, in 5 to 10 years there
will be no demand for micoshaft products.
Thus even micoshaft recognizing this has switched
to being SuSE Linux distributor.

You would be better off learning Linux now.
It will be asked in job requirments sooner than later.

Again, I agree.

I envy the people in COLA who can rattle off GPL/Linux/OSS application
information so fluidly.

I am barely a neophyte compared...

Holy Sh! At that rate, in another 100 years, MS will be below 90%
share for the first time in a long time. Ballmer will be hearing
footsteps then, but only if he turns up his hearing aid.

"Microshaft" was funny in 1995. It isn't now.
Grow the **** up. You're doing an injustice to an otherwise fine OS.

That is, of course, unless you're actually a Microsoft shill trying to make
the average Linux user look like a clown.

He's making fun of the company, not the OS.

I've always been partial to "Crimosoft", myself. With the DOJ and the
endless litigation, it seems a good fit.

You mean he's an Anti-MS-Evangelist?

Talk about making someone look like a clown, what about these bozos that
tag themselves as "Microsoft Evangelists".

Hurry to the other side of the street before that Evangelist starts
browbeating you about Microsoff soffware!

I was referring to Linux.

They're no better than any other evangelists. IOW, annoying pains in the ass.

Keep in mind that in this survey, you also have to include "other",
which shows Linux growing from 7% to 9% in less than 1 year. Keep in
mind that most Linux browsers don't sign themselves as "Linux" because
there is no legal requirement to do so. On the other hand, Windows and
Mac machines are required to do so as a condition of using their OS
interface libraries.

Many Konquerer users masquerade as Windows 9x machines (1.4% left, even
though it's been "obsolete" and "unsupported" for almost a year now).

In November 2002 The combined (Linux/Other) was 4%, in July, it went
to 8%. Keep in mind this is percent of total installed base, roughly 1
billion machines.

so in 4 years, Linux has doubled it's market share.


Heres some data
You should be able to plug this into excel or calc and generate a nice
little chart.
The WinXP and W2000 can be excluded to give you a better sense of the
growth and fluctuations.
