Mas o 'briefing' é positivo. Saca só:

Despite campaigns by rivals such as the SCO Group and Microsoft, Linux has become widely used. According to a June study by Forrester Research of 129 companies with annual revenue exceeding $500 million, 24 percent use Linux on 10 or more Intel-based servers today and 44 percent expect to do so three years from now. That's still a far cry from the 88 percent that use Windows, but it's making gains on the most popular Unix, Sun's Solaris, at 43 percent.

IDC's worldwide market share shows that Windows outshipped Linux in 2003 for server operating systems, with 15 percent of the 5.6 million copies sold compared with Linux's 6.8 percent and Unix's 5 percent.

But on desktop computers, Linux moved up, surpassing Apple Computer's Mac OS, said researcher Dan Kusnetzky. Linux is still not a mainstream product for desktop machines, though, he said.

And Linux skills are in demand. Of the 49,000 or so jobs open at online recruiting company Dice, about 2,200 require or desire Linux skills, said Chief Executive Scot Melland. That's nearly triple the number from 12 months ago, he said. "Linux skills are one of the fastest-growing skill sets on our site."
