Novell Leads Chinese Linux Market

Internet News reported (back in March) that Novell held the top spot in the Chinese Linux market, measured by revenue.

“Novell is claiming again that it is the Linux leader in China. This time the data comes from China-based analyst firm CCID Consulting, which reported that Novell holds a 25.1 percent revenue share of the China Linux market.”

Meanwhile, Fedora, Sun Wah, and Turbolinux are also competing very successfully in China, and not just against other Linux distros: “In a recent press release, Turbolinux cited 2004 IDC data that reportedly give them a nearly 25 percent market share of the Chinese desktop OS market. In April, they signed China’s biggest bank representing over 100 million customers.”
