No other product comes close to these expectations -- not Windows, Macintosh or Unix. Why so much use? However, concern about the vulnerability of Microsoft products is also speeding up Linux adoption.
Two-thirds of sites state that Windows security concerns are driving Linux adoption on servers while nearly three in five server users want another option to Windows Linux has its edge on Windows, with low cost, reliable performance, secure environment, expected future innovation and confidence in open-source development model.
The primary reasons for using Linux on PCs were similar though with different relative weights: Eighty-four percent of sites say they are highly satisfied with Linux-server performance [, and half of the sites reported] the same level of satisfaction on PCs.
A survey claims that around half of all companies making embedded products are using Linux in them, with an increasing trend. The next largest was MS Windows at Even more interestingly, the developers expected that of the OSs in their companies embedded designs in the next 2 years, Linux would be used by This survey is from LinuxDevice.
Still, that's an important caveat, and the the respondents are self-selected which can often skew surveys. Still, it's of interest in showing that there is a growing trend of use, and it has other interesting results about embedded environments.What is NSA's role in U.S.
