I hate when people take photos of their meal instead of eating it, because there's nothing I love more than the sound of other people chewing.

Linux is king *nix of the data center—but Unix may live on forever

by Jon Brodkin
Unix creators Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson.

At the Linux Foundation's annual conference in August, IBM VP Brad McCredie told the crowd something that was probably unthinkable when Linus Torvalds created his new operating system kernel two decades ago.

"The Linux market now is bigger than the Unix market," he said.

As recently as Q4 2010, Unix server revenue was 25.6 percent of the worldwide market, with Linux at 17 percent, according to IDC. By the first quarter of 2012, Linux commanded 20.7 percent of worldwide server revenue compared to Unix's 18.3 percent. And in IDC's most recent report covering Q2 2013, Linux was up to 23.2 percent of all revenue with $2.8 billion, while Unix fell 21 percent year over year to $1.8 billion. Unix's Q2 server revenue of 15.1 percent was its lowest ever reported by IDC. (Windows servers account for nearly 50 percent of revenue, while IBM's mainframes took nearly 10 percent.)
