Worldwide Operating Systems and Subsystems Market Shares, 2014: The Market Goes as Microsoft Goes

This IDC study sees the operating systems and subsystems market as being pivotal to the adoption of 3rd Platform compute paradigms."As customers move to next-generation applications, decisions need to be made about the application's form, the languages or frameworks used, what container technology, if any, will be used, and the private clouds operating model that will serve as the foundation of those applications. Underlying and driven by all those decisions is what the underlying operating system will be," said Al Gillen, program VP, Servers and System Software, IDC. "We believe that there will be a transition to favor thin operating systems and container technology, although it is clear the market has not yet decided which vendor's components will be used."
