A Microsoft-Centric Trend
"Linux is losing momentum among medium sized enterprises, according to a survey by Canadian research firm Info-Tech Research Group.
After years of increased interest in the open source operating system, IT managers from medium sized businesses have come to a conclusion that open source is not for them.
The findings point to a rift between large enterprises that are increasingly embracing open source and smaller businesses that opt for a Microsoft-centric world."
