Linux Server Adoption Grows... According to Linux

With Microsoft focusing its attention to the cloud and smartphone markets, is Windows Server adoption suffering? Might seem so, according to a Linux Foundation survey, which sees a rise in Linux server installs and a decrease of Windows adoption at the enterprise level. But the results should be taken with heaping tablespoons of salt, what with the survey backed by someone who has a vested interest in such positive results. GigaOM's Matt Asay cites that "41 percent of respondents plan to add more Windows servers in the next year." As if that's a small number. In the midst of a recession, 41 percent is a lot of Windows servers.
