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.”

This comes from a report in Vnunet. The article goes on to point out that managers perceive Linux to be poorly supported, hard to maintain, and unreliable.
