Sites Switching from Linux to Windows Server 2003
As was the case shortly after the release of Windows 2000 a few years back, the release of Windows Server 2003 this April has triggered a raft of defections to the new operating system, many of which are coming from an unexpected place: Linux. According to Web monitoring firm Netcraft, the number of active Web sites based on Windows Server 2003 has jumped 300 percent since its launch, and the OS now powers almost 90,000 Web sites. 42 percent of these sites are new sites, 43 were upgrades from other Windows Server versions (primarily Win2K), and 5 percent migrated from Linux. In the wake of Apple's Switch campaign failure, it's nice to see someone actually switching. To something.
