WinInfo Short Takes: Week of November 28: Windows Leads Server Market: "And finally, Microsoft for the first time saw Windows Server lead the new server market, thanks to strong server growth and healthy sales of Windows Server 2003. The worldwide server market grew 8.1 percent in the third quarter of 2005, according to IDC, while server revenues grew 5.6 percent. Sales of servers based on Windows Server accounted for 36.9 percent of all server revenue in the quarter, compared to 31.7 percent for UNIX and 11.5 percent for Linux. According to IDC, Windows Server growth was fueled in part by NT migrations, which are finally starting to happen in volume."
