Seems like IBM is making progress in other areas....
So does IBM really sell more computer running Unix than Apple?
Well, sorry, just couldn't resist.
And yes, I know...I know.
And I <3 IBM, I really do.
Or does IBM include Apple Servers in their count since they are running IBM chips? (Probably not though, since otherwise Intel would be able to do the same).
Still, I'm not that surprised. IBM is a monster.
They don't, and Apple sell so few Xserve boxes that they are lumping the sales in with the desktops.
We ported our server software to AIX last year - they are very fast, but also very expensive.
I know...I was counting their desktops and notebooks. Since they do run Unix inasmuch as the XServes do. But again, really just kidding. I understood the article's point.
That was for dvdh, I got what you were gettting at
I do wonder if IDC are counting Apple stuff as Unix at all, though. OS X isn't officially Unix, and e.g. Lunix is tallied separately...
Pretty certain that the Xserve had the biggest increase % wise in sales last year.
