the increasing use of Linux by small and midsize businesses.
"A growing number of the estimated 5.8 million small and midsize businesses in the United States are buying Linux solutions, mostly from solution providers, according to research from AMI-Partners.
Linux, according to AMI, of New York, is benefiting from a growing acceptance of open-source products overall.
"While Linux is becoming more mainstream, our research shows that SMBs are more interested in open-source solutions than Linux per se," said Abhijeet Rane, AMI's senior vice president. "The SMBs buying Linux solutions are mostly buying apps that operate in the background of a business."
