Has Linux adoption peaked?

According to a survey the adoption of Linux seems to be slowing. Use of Linux on servers was recorded in 53 percent of the 500 surveyed US companies, while this time only 7 percent of the companies planned to adopt Linux. This is the lowest figure since September 2003.
"This is the first indication we've seen that [Linux] adoption may be hitting a wall," the report said, continuing: "These data should ease concerns among Microsoft investors about the impact of Linux on Windows in the server market -- success by both is not mutually exclusive and Microsoft seems to be more than holding its own."
