A survey conducted by research giant International Data Corp. has found 
the use of Linux has exploded in Australian and New Zealand organisations. 
IDC questioned 330 CIOs and IT managers about their use of and attitudes 
to Linux. The analysts found the percentage of respondents using Linux 
servers has nearly doubled since 1999, up to 32.4 percent. While 
organisations not using Linux are still in the majority, the survey also 
found that 4.9 percent of respondents had actually rejected the use of the 
open source platform.
