Though more and more packaged BI vendors have announced support for Linux in their reporting tools this year, readers of Business Intelligence Pipeline say they still see databases as Linux's sweet spot in the BI world.In our most recent Voting Booth poll, we asked readers to name the BI application area where they see Linux gaining the most traction in the coming years. The largest group of voters, 43 percent, named databases as the most likely set of tools to flourish on Linux.
