Look out Big Business is going Linux....

In case you have been hiding and ignoring the Linux news, surprise, surprise, Linux is growing inside of large companies.  The Linux Foundation with the Yeoman group have done a survey to prove it.  The most interesting fact to me was that most of the growth or the largest amount of growth were in greenfield/new installations.  This has very positive long term consequences since most companies tend not to switch to a different OS after getting a system up and functional.
