SunWorld reviews the results of its poll on the importance of Open Source to developers Not surprisingly 96% of Linux users considered it important, but so did 77% of NT users, with an average of 69% of developers finding OpenSource very important to their work. Even managers like OpenSource, with 70% calling it very important versus 75% for sysadmins. GNU utilities took the king's place with 85% of cross-platform respondents using them. One interesting figure is that Linux is more prevalent in smaller companies while Solaris rules the roost of larger companies... so SunWorld named us a competitor to Sun. Thanks, Andrew Crump and Jim Kinney, for this one.
