There is a interesting article about competition from Linux on Small Business Server 2003 R2 published on CRN about the refocus of Microsoft and Linux Rivals on SMB Servers.

It’s good to hear that Microsoft are still seen as the Market leaders in this segment, but I also think it is important that we remain aware of the competition.

 

Great quote from the article:

“Despite Linux's success in the enterprise-server space, it has yet to make a dent against Windows SBS 2003 in the SMB market, several other partners say. "Microsoft has this segment completely wrapped up, and SBS has no competition from what we have seen. There are other small-business server offerings out there, but they do not compare," said Jason Harrison, president of Harrison Technology Consulting, Nashville, N.C.”
