      > Linux, according to a Gartner survey of 850 organisations in Asia.
      > The number of current Linux users has been growing rapidly. In September,
      > about 13% of companies in Asia were Linux users, compared to about only 6%
      > to 7% one year ago, says Gartner Sydney-based servers and storage research
      > director Phil Sargeant.
      > Continued Linux growth in the region will depend on the types of
      > applications that are made available for the Linux platform, Sargeant says.

      > Currently, Linux is used mainly for low-level applications, such as file
      > sharing and web and email applications, Sargeant says. For Linux usage to
      > grow in the region, large-scale database deployments and financial-type
      > applications have to be developed. Not having large types of applications

      > According to the Gartner report, Windows is the most widely used enterprise
      > operating system in the region, with Sun's Solaris, the second most commonly
      > used operating system, ranked as the only Unix operating system more widely
      > installed than Linux, which ranked third.
