According to a recent analysis from IDC, about 10 percent of the ten billion euros spent on servers world-wide in 2005 was on Linux servers. Linux servers have now had their eleventh consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, with worldwide investment in Linux servers for both technical and commercial workloads remaining strong and getting stronger.

Linux servers posted their eleventh consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, with year-over-year revenue growth of 35.2% and unit shipments up 31.1%. Customers continue to expand the role of Linux servers into an ever increasing array of workloads in both the commercial and technical segments of the market.
