Linux sales in 2004 follows six consecutive quarters of double-digit growth for the free operating system during unprecedented legal attacks from SCO over the same period.

Linuxlookup.com staff member Rich reviews Cedega (WineX 4.0), giving it a 20/20 Editors Choice Award. "The release of Transgaming's newest version of WineX, renamed Cedega, was met with considerable enthusiasm and interest in the Linux community last week. So much so that their server was inaccessible the day of release. Cedega is claimed to be much improved, offering the ability to play recent games released for Windows "seamlessly and transparently" under Linux. They provided me with a copy, and I was curious to see if it lived up to the hype."

Until Microsoft proves it can fix IE's security bugs, you're better off using one of a few good alternatives as much as possible In late June, network security experts saw one of their worst fears realized. Attackers exploited a pair of known but unpatched flaws in Microsoft's Web server software and Internet Explorer browser to compromise seemingly safe Web sites. People who browsed there on Windows computers got infected with malicious code without downloading anything. I've been growing increasingly concerned about IE's endless security problems, and this episode has convinced me that the program is simply too dangerous for routine use.

  The Dominance of Linux on the Server
IT-Analysis (Posted by dave on Jun 29, 2004 8:30 PM)
[Story Type: News Story; Groups: SCO]
Score: (1 vote; 100% positive)
Linux is not yet the dominant server OS in terms of units deployed or units shipped. Microsoft still has the lion's share of the market by all reasonable estimations. It is true that Linux market share figures are likely to be inaccurate because there is no easy way to count new Linux servers. The major problem is that it is possible to estimate those servers that come with Linux loaded, but not possible to count servers that were running something else (Windows or SCO UNIX or whatever) that were repurposed.
