Analyst: Microsoft owns 86% of SBS market | at | by Mike

Microsoft's Small Business Server is a remarkable hit, said a research firm Monday as it released the results of a survey that claimed an astounding 86 percent of small- and mid-sized businesses either use the server bundle or are planning to deploy it.

"Who knew this was going to be such as huge hit?" said Laura DiDio, the Yankee Group senior analyst who conducted the survey of some 500 small and mid-sized businesses, as well as resellers and consultants.
