And there is the classic problem with data and the analysis thereof. That site draws its information from webcrawlers basically looking at WEBSERVERS it makes no mention of Fileservers which is possibly the lions share when it comes to support contracts.

There are far more FILE and MAIL servers out there than WEBSERVER boxes. So effectively that chart is a load of old twaddle.
