Hi Betty
I don't have up to date information (IDC do produce it each year but it costs several thousand dollars to get a copy - possibly EMC will have something in your market research dept). Never the less I was able to discover that in 2007 ( somewhat old now) 1/3rd of Oracle's database revenue came from Windows. The rest was split IIRC approx 50% UNIX, 50% Linux (the focus of my presentation was Oracle on Windows so I didn't keep the rest of the info.
