This seems to agree with the way things are in the real world, but did anyone else notice this on p. 4?
"This multi-faceted research study consisted of a telephone survey using a random sample of several thousand IT organizations, a web survey of self-selecting respondents, and in-depth interviews with CIOs and MIS Managers in 13 enterprises with Linux environments. Overall, the study netted over 200 responses."
How many in each category?
And can't you get a "web survey of self-selecting respondents" to say anything you want, depending on who you promote it to?
Wouldn't we be calling b------t on this if the results came out the other way?
(Interesting, though, that "Hank the Angry Drunken Dwarf" took one week of training and now administers 50,000 Linux servers for $36,000/year and gets 99.9999% uptime.)
