IDC, the market analysis company has published a report making projections for world-wide Linux spending for the next few years. The report has been sponsored by the Linux Foundation and is available for free download. One of IDC’s predications is that world-wide spending on Linux will reach $49 billion in 2011 and the report notes that Linux is gradually moving out of the server closet where it fulfilled roles such as file and print serving and into more mission critical roles in a variety of different industry sectors.
