Shuttleworth highlights server growth as Ubuntu overtakes RHEL on top websites


From ArsTechnica:
He published a graph which indicates that Ubuntu deployments have surpassed those of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) among the top one million most popular websites.

This is a noteworthy milestone for Ubuntu because it reinforces the distribution's relevance beyond the desktop. The strong pattern of growth illustrates that Ubuntu is a serious contender in the server market. It's important to remember, however, that Ubuntu server deployments don't all equal paying customers for Canonical. Ubuntu still has a long way to go before it will match RHEL's commercial success.
