The data is clear and the numbers speak for a clear winner in the field of enterprise servers within the Linux branch. Both of us, Ubuntu and Debian are postulated as clear winners and gather more than 50% of the market share. A very favorable trend for our favorite operating system, which, however, clashes with the data obtained by the version of Red Hat and Fedora where their figures continue to fall.
The world of servers is a very different part of the home environment and, I speak from personal experience, about three quarters of the computers that are configured use a Linux-based operating system. This gives a clear idea of the importance of this operating system in the world of large companies, Where some of the distributions are usually the basis of another product that runs above.
The graphics do not lie and the results offered by W3Tech regarding the use of Linux distributions in the business environment and, specifically, in corporate servers give a clear advantage over Ubuntu and Debian distributions.
With a similar result, Ubuntu and Debian reap values of 32.1% compared to the most used distribution. This is CentOS, with 20.4%, which is well above the following.
Ultimately, we find a series of curious figures such as those left to us by Red Hat, being used in 3.9% of stations, Gentoo with 2.7% and finally, with almost residual relevance, Fedora and SUSE, With 1.1% and 1.0%. It is relevant the distance that keep the first two distributions in front of the rest and that give a clear idea of the tendencies of market for the next years.
Considering the Alexa ranking of the 10 million most visited websites (in the graph shown, the percentage is calculated is on the total of operating systems, which includes both Windows and Unix systems), Ubuntu ranks as the strongest system within Europe, Especially in countries such as Latvia, Hungary and also, within the Asian continent, in China and Japan.
We hope that these figures encourage the people of Canonical and continue to invest heavily within the business sector. And you Have you tried to install in your home or business any distribution for companies that we have talked about?
