SCO, which has filed a series of lawsuits charging copyright infringement of Unix code against Linux users and developers, is not slowing down Linux adoption, according to NewsFactor.

“Although some open-source advocates claim SCO’s strategy was designed to slow down the rate of Linux adoption, today that scenario does not seem to have panned out,” NewsFactor reports. “Linux server shipments jumped by 52 percent in the fourth quarter of 2003, according to research company IDC, which expects Linux to almost double its market share from 16 percent in 2003 to 30 percent by 2008.”
