"Moving From NT To Linux?
...According to IBM, upwards of 50,000 NT servers worldwide were migrated to Linux in Q1. IBM is expecting to capitalize on the fact that Microsoft is supposed to pull the plug on service and support for the two million NT servers in the world and is recruiting resellers to push Linux on the NT sites. In March it had 45 migration-trained business partners and is reportedly adding about five a week. IBM thinks 760,000 of the NT servers will migrate off of NT this year and that Linux can capture half of them. The rest will gravitate to Windows Server 2003".
