Almost half of users will move to Linux for critical apps in 4 years

A survey of 133 IT executives by Saugatuck Research found that while only 18% were using Linux in critical server deployments presently, almost half these executive said they’ll have their top apps migrating to, or running full steam on, the open source platform in the next four years.

The report focused on Linux rollouts for “business critical” applications. Software that could be considered in this category includes CRM, ERP, relational database management systems (RDMS) or customized workflow or industry-specific applications (e.g. CAD and plant control software in manufacturing, trading software on Wall Street, patient records systems in hospitals).
