The survey featured developers at enterprises, VARs and system
integrators, and covered both client and server application development.
According to the survey, the decline in Windows targeting by developers
started in 2005, and has increased year-over-year as Linux matured and
gained in popularity as an enterprise level OS.
While the implications of the issue are difficult to quantify, any of the following symptoms can occur:
* The system may stop responding to keyboard or mouse input.
* A system operating in a Microsoft Windows environment may generate a blue screen.
* A system operating in a Linux environment may generate a kernel panic.
This was the first I had heard of this; probably a good time to check for BIOS or microcode updates.
