The Server War

Lutz Behnke
For the last few years Microsoft Server Software and Linux Products have not realy been competing very much. Both sides where too busy gobbling up the large chunks of market real-estate that where left dormant by makers of large scale servers, who where unable to offer efficient and easy to use entry-level servers. Also the market for those entry class servers was growing and this class of servers was continuosly moving onto higher and higher ground as the performance parameters of off-the-shelf PCs grew in leaps and bounds.
