: were MandrakeSoft (4%) and Corel (1%). Figure 1. A potential area of concern for Red Hat is the sales growth of its next three competitors. From 1998 to 1999, the Linux market overall grew by 89% (by units shipped), but Red Hat grew only 69%. This is in sharp contrast to the growth of SuSE (175%), Caldera (175%), and TurboLinux (450%).

Come See the Softer Side of Linux?
Three hardware manufacturers, trying to upgrade the scalability and manageability of Linux servers, announced major Linux server initiatives at LinuxWorld in New York.
: the next two years. Corel s recent announcement of WordPerfect Office Suite for Linux will help spread desktop apps further. User Recommendations As always, users committed to Windows only or Solaris only will have little interest in these announcements. However, those users wanting to (or willing to) build up Linux server capability will find more reasons to consider it. Linux vendors are trying to eliminate NT s competitive advantages (e.g., GUI friendliness), while at the same time strengthening
Intel Server Trends
The Intel-based server market is one of the most hotly contested segments in the industry. What are the key trends in this market, and what will they mean to users, vendors, and the products themselves?
: no surprise there. Although Corel s Linux distribution is supposed to be the easiest to load, plus able to run Windows applications, it is a desktop-oriented product, so we don t include it in our assessment. Vendor Unsurprisingly, hardware vendors waited until 1999 to provide Linux in their servers. So far Dell is the only vendor with enough courage to factory-install Linux on its servers, but we expect others to follow suit in 2000. (Note that a lot of the Linux-oriented statements to come from server

IA-64 Linux From Red Hat
Red Hat announces the availability of the source code for IA-64 platforms, the first of which will be Intel’s “Itanium” processor, due later this year.
: share leadership. Caldera, SuSE, Corel, and TurboLinux will need to consider responding in kind, if for no other reason than Itanium support will become a check box when customers consider server OSes. The impact of this announcement on Advanced Micro Devices forthcoming 64-bit processor, code named Sledgehammer, is presently unclear. AMD says Sledgehammer will have full x86 32-bit and 64-bit compatibility (unlike Itanium), so the need to spend a lot of effort to get code rewritten is not as great.

IBM s Lotus Development Corporation, after the disappointing results for its Java-centric eSuite, has been reluctant to enter these waters.
