Windows Beating Linux 2 to 1 in Enterprise Servers Segment
By on January 13th, 2010

Linux no doubt powers millions of servers across the world, however, it might come out as a surprise to many of you that Windows is ahead of Linux in the Enterprise server segment.

A recent data analysis by the folks at Royal Pingdom, shows that Windows is the preferred enterprise server and beats Linux 2 to 1.

However, this may not be actual data and only form a part of the actual scenario. The information was collected by Symantec sponsored survey where 1,780 enterprises were surveyed across 26 countries. The survey included small, medium-sized and large enterprises from a wide variety of industries. The companies who were surveyed had 1000 or more employees.

What do you think? Do you have more Windows servers than NIX* boxes as servers at the place that you work at? Do let us know through your comments.
