Just for the sake of argument...

Countless corporations and research organizations do not use Linux.

They use Enterprise Linux. Big difference.

They use a Linux which is supported by a credible organization (RedHat, HP, IBM, Oracle and a *few* more). That leaves more than 99% of distros out.

I am talking about "corporate/enterprise servers" strictly. I (and Oracle) couldn't care less about the desktop.
